    FACe, el punto de entrada de facturas para más de 20.000 unidades de todos los ámbitos administrativos recibe más de un millón de facturas. Unshade accordion

    Desde el pasado 15 de enero de 2015 todas las Administraciones Públicas tienen la obligación de recibir las facturas de sus proveedores por vía electrónica, de acuerdo con lo que establece la Ley de impulso de la factura electrónica y creación del registro contable.

    Además de la Administración General del Estado que debe usar obligatoriamente FACe, muchas otras administraciones Públicas de todos los ámbitos administrativos (estatal, regional, local, universidades) están encauzando la recepción de sus facturas a través de FACe.

    El modelo español que marca la ley 25/2013 y en el que FACe ejerce de punto de apoyo,  define un modelo con pocos ejemplos comparables a nivel internacional. A través de un único punto de entrada de facturas - una ventanilla común -, los proveedores de bienes y servicios de más de 6.000 AA.PP. entre ellas grandes municipios, Comunidades Autónomas y la Administración General del Estado pueden presentar las facturas a sus clientes del Sector Público, con un mismo formato y las mismas reglas de codificación que permiten que las AA.PP. puedan interoperar en su trabajo de facturación, lo cual repercute directamente en una mejora en la relación de los proveedores con el sector público.

    In this period, the entry point of Electronic Invoices (FACe) of the General administration of the state, presents the following data:

    • 3.066 unidades de las 16 CCAA adheridas, más las Ciudades Autónomas de Ceuta y Melilla.
    • 6521 EELL affixed, 5,802 of them already receiving electronic invoices.
    • Integrados los distintos puntos de tramitación de los Ministerios: 3.316 unidades pueden recibir facturas de los 868 organismos de la AGE adheridos a FACe.
    • 34 Universities in production
    • 20 Institutions in production
    • More than 1.2 million invoices processed
