e-Invoice Registry in Finland was established already in 2004 and completely renewed in 2018. The register contains 244,000 Finnish organization's eInvoicing addresses. Using the register is free of charge.

All Finnish operators and banks are members in the register.

The register is actively used and there are thousands of searches made every day. Some of the Finnish financial management software vendors also download the data from the register for their own use in order to better serve their customers.

The register is constantly being developed and its use is expanding throughout the Finnish organisations.

The goal of Schematron validation is the automation of financial management. The main objective of the validation is to create conditions for automating the processing of e-Invoices.

The information in an e-Invoice must be correct. For example, the VAT of the products should be correctly and punctually calculated. 

Schematron validation verifies if the information in eInvoices is correct.

Schematron validation is based on the EU standard EN16931.

All Finnish operators begin the validation of the invoices in 2021.
