The Governments of Australia and New Zealand have announced the membership of the Australia and New Zealand Electronic Invoicing Board (ANZEIB) today.

This is an important step towards implementing e-Invoicing across both countries to help businesses save time and money by allowing the direct exchange of invoices between suppliers' and buyers' financial systems.

The ANZEIB membership comprises:

Ramez Katf, Chief Information Officer at the Australian Taxation Office (Australian co-Chair)

Stewart McRobie, Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment Chief Financial Officer (New Zealand co-Chair)

Elizabeth Williamson, the Australian Treasury's Division Head of the Consumer and Corporations Policy Division

Rina Bruinsma, the Australian Department of Finance's First Assistant Secretary of the Public Sector Transformation Division

Paul Helm, the New Zealand Treasury Head of Government Finance Profession and Chief Government Accountant

Gary Baird, Chief Technology Officer, the New Zealand Inland Revenue Department

Deborah Shepherd, an independent New Zealand industry representative

Rebecca Schot-Guppy, independent Australian industry representative

The extensive knowledge and industry experience of all ANZEIB members will help contribute to the continued success of e-Invoicing. The ANZEIB will meet for the first time today.

The successful collaboration between Australia and New Zealand to progress e-Invoicing as part of the Single Economic Market agenda was highlighted in the Productivity Commissions' joint report 'Growing the digital economy in Australia and New Zealand: Maximising opportunities for SMEs'.

Prime Ministers Scott Morrison and Jacinda Ardern announced the creation of the ANZEIB and the intention to adopt the Pan-European Public Procurement Online (PEPPOL) interoperability framework in 2019 in a joint statement in February.
