Successful applications will be certified as eInvoicing Ready and listed on the eInvoicing Ready product register.
All steps are required to be completed in meeting the requirements of the assessment criteria these will be applied per product and are outlined below:

Submit application by:
- completing the AU eInvoicing product application form (DOCX, 984KB) and submitting it to eInvoicing@ato.gov.au or

The below outlines the sections of the application form to be completed:

To protect the interests of end-users and the other service providers operating in the network, we will use the information obtained in the application form to conduct a few due diligence checks.
The due diligence checks include:
- confirmation the entity providing the service is a registered business
- confirmation the entity providing the service is not insolvent

- criminal record check.
Step 3 - Acceptance email and product listing

Software products that meet the eInvoicing Ready criteria and indicated that they would like to be listed on the New Zealand register will only need to complete one application form.
You will be required to complete a renewal process 12 months from when you met the criteria with the Australian Peppol Authority to maintain your status as eInvoicing Ready.

Changes to product
For products with changes, you must notify us at eInvoicing@ato.gov.au of the changes and as applicable provide updated screenshots, for example, adding send or receive capability.
