Factur-X: electronic invoicing standard for Germany & France

Project description

Factur-X Python library

Factur-X is the e-invoicing standard for France and Germany. The Factur-X specifications are available on the FNFE-MPE website.

The main feature of this Python library is to generate Factur-X invoices from a regular PDF invoice and a Factur-X compliant XML file.

This lib provides additionnal features such as:

  • extract the Factur-X XML file from a Factur-X PDF invoice,
  • check a Factur-X XML file against the official XML Schema Definition.

Some of the features provided by this lib also work for the ZUGFeRD e-invoicing standard (the ancestor of the Factur-X standard).

Installation

sudo pip install --upgrade factur-x

Usage

from facturx import generate_facturx

facturx_pdf_invoice = generate_facturx(regular_pdf_invoice, facturx_xml_file)

To have more examples, look at the source code of the command line tools located in the bin subdirectory.

Command line tools

Several command line tools are provided with this lib:

  • facturx-pdfgen: generate a Factur-X PDF invoice from a regular PDF invoice and an XML file
  • facturx-pdfextractxml: extract the Factur-X XML file from a Factur-X PDF invoice
  • facturx-xmlcheck: check a Factur-X XML file against the official Factur-X XML Schema Definition

All these commande line tools have a -h option that explains how to use them and shows all the available options.

Licence

This library is published under the BSD licence (same licence as PyPDF2 on which this lib depends).
