Press release 3 June 2022

Athens/Brussels/Adelaide, June 2022

In the margin of its General Assembly Meeting held in Athens, Greece on 2 June, EESPA signed a strategic cooperation agreement with DSPANZ.

Both organisations share similar objectives to improve the adoption of business document automation in general and e-invoicing in particular. DSPANZ is the primary association representing  e-invoicing providers across Australia and New Zealand, whereas EESPA represents this industry at the  European level.

EESPA’s Co-Chairs Bengt Nilsson and Marcus Laube declared: “EESPA is recognized as the voice of the European e-Invoicing industry, but digital trade flows don’t stop at the European borders. We strongly believe in the merits of a global cooperation between Service Providers and this MoU with DSPANZ is an important step into that direction”.

Simon Foster, President of DSPANZ added: “European providers have been an important part of the growth of e-Invoicing in Australia and New Zealand.  We are excited to develop a closer relationship with EESPA as we work towards the common goal of global e-invoicing interoperability.”.

Through this MoU, both organisations and their respective members will combine their forces and expertise to increase awareness and adoption of e-invoicing world-wide and to promote cooperation    in important areas such as interoperability and advocacy. 


The Association of Digital Service Providers Australia New Zealand (DSPANZ) is the gateway for the government into the dynamic, world class business software sector in Australia and New Zealand. Since 2015, DSPANZ has had a vital role in progressing A-NZ eInvoicing and continues to work with A-NZ Peppol Authorities on supporting Service Providers and the wider eInvoicing community.
