  • An e-mail incl. attachments must not exceed 10 MB in size.
  • Attachments will be processed only in compliance with the following rules:
    • One invoice file per e-mail; file name of invoice file basically arbitrary…
      …but NOT starting with AN or AT
      …and not containing the word PackedList
    • Attachments to the invoice can be added to the mail; these file names MUST start with AN or AT and they must be in PDF format.
  • The invoice can be sent in the following formats: PDF, ZUGFeRD or XInvoice.
