Generate Chorus-compliant UBL e-invoices

Project description

License: AGPL-3

L10n FR Chorus UBL

With this module, Odoo will be able to generate E1 UBL XML invoices that comply with Chorus specifications available on Chorus Pro Community website. Chorus Pro is the electronic invoicing plateform of the French administration. All the suppliers of the French administration can send their invoices through Chorus and it is progressively becoming an obligation for all suppliers. To know more about Chorus and the obligation to send electronic invoices to the French administration, read the dedicated page on the website of the Ministry of Economic Affairs.


Refer to the README of the module l10n_fr_chorus_account.


In the menu Accounting > Customers > Customer Invoices, create an invoice for the French Administration. Validate the invoice. Then click on the button Generate UBL XML File and download the generated XML file.

Then log into Chorus Pro. Go to the menu Factures émises > Dépôt factures or, in the welcome screen Accueil connecté, in the section Accès Rapide, click on the button Déposer une facture. Then, in the pop-up, select:

  1. Format de dépôt: XML structuré
  2. Syntaxe: UBL Invoice
  3. Structure: should display the name of your company.
  4. Choix du fichier à importer: select the UBL XML file generated by Odoo.

and click on Continuer.

Once the invoice has been successfully uploaded, you should find the invoice in the menu Factures émises > Rechercher or in the menu Factures émises > Tableau de bord and you should be able to see the status of the invoice. If there is an error in the XML syntax, you will receive an email several hours after the upload with the details of the error (in my experience, it was 14h after the upload !).

Known issues / Roadmap

Add support for the automatic transmission of invoices to Chorus via API (but it requires a RGS 1 star certificate, which costs about 250 € / year)
