The use of Peppol in New Zealand
New Zealand adopted Peppol in 2019, when the Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment (MBIE) became a Peppol Authority.
New Zealand is following the same Peppol initiative taken by other non-European countries such as Australia and Singapore. Peppol first began as a European network, but is now expanding across the globe.

New Zealand has already taken the first steps towards mandatory e-invoicing. From the 31st of March 2022, central government agencies had to be able to receive invoices in an electronic format via the Peppol network. Therefore affecting any B2G transactions.
