Similarly to many other international companies, Stora Enso prefers electronic invoices as the primary method of invoicing.
We encourage our suppliers to move from paper invoices to electronic invoices as it brings a number of advantages:
Faster Invoice process and more secure delivery of invoices
Reduced environmental impact
Reduced cost for enveloping, postage and mailing
For our Finnish and Swedish units we recommend using eInvoicing (in XML format) as it is the most automated and efficient method of invoicing. For other countries, we recommend using PDF invoice, or paper invoice if none of the electronic options are available.
To ensure the timely processing of an invoice, kindly note the mandatory data that needs to be available on the invoice: Missing invoice reference data
Please find example invoice with the required information here: Example invoice
E-Invoicing (XML data)
E-invoice is the preferred way of receiving invoices in Stora Enso for Finland and Sweden. We have a partnership with CGI as our operator and we accept formats of Finvoice, TEAPSS and Svefaktura.
More details about our operator number, unit addresses and OVT / VAT ID can be found here: OVT and VAT codes
If you are currently unable to send e-invoices in XML format, you should consider sending invoices in PDF format via e-mail.
Detailed instructions on how to send us PDF-invoices and which email address should be used can be found here: PDF-invoicing
