Seamless invoicing

Invoicing: Key points

As a supplier to Deutsche Bahn, you are helping us shape the mobility of tomorrow. We want to make the invoice approval process as smooth as possible, which also means ensuring good-quality data on the invoices submitted to us. In order to avoid the need for additional clarification or delays in the payment of the invoice amount, please take the following Deutsche Bahn Group requirements into account when preparing your invoices.

Please note

As a public contracting entity, we are required by law to request an electronically transmitted invoice from you in the XRechnung e-invoice format.

Irrespective of the obligation for public contracting entities, we as Deutsche Bahn would like to and will only accept XInvoice as an electronic invoice format - with a few exceptions.

Invoices in PDF format do not comply with the required format and must therefore be converted.

Sending invoices by physical mail does not fulfill the requirement for an XRechnung.
