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:
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 in this example: invoice reference data example PDF
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.

If you are currently unable to send e-invoices in XML format, you should consider sending invoices in PDF format via e-mail.
