Base module for Factur-X and ZUGFeRD

Project description

License: AGPL-3

Base Factur-X and ZUGFeRD

This is the base module for the implementation of the Factur-X and ZUGFeRD standards. It is a standard based on CII (Cross-Industry Invoice) for electronic invoicing. The great idea of the Factur-X and ZUGFeRD standards is to embed an XML file inside the PDF invoice to carry structured information about the invoice.


To configure this module, you need to:

  • go to the menu Sales > Configuration > Units of Measures and check the UNECE Code for the units of measures that you use in customer invoices/refunds.
  • go to the menu Accounting > Configuration > Taxes > Taxes and, for each tax that you may use in customer invoices/refunds, set a UNECE Type Code and a UNECE Category Code.
  • go to the menu Accouting > Configuration > Miscellaneous > Payment Export Types and assign a UNECE Code to the payment types that are selected in the payment modes that you use in customer invoices/refunds.


This module doesn’t do anything by itself, but it is used by 2 other modules:

  • account_invoice_factur-x that generate Factur-X/ZUGFeRD 2.0 customer invoices/refunds,
  • account_invoice_import_factur-x that imports ZUGFeRD 1.0 and Factur-X/ZUGFeRD 2.0 supplier invoices/refunds.
