Generate Electronic Invoices

In Business Central, after you post a sales invoice you must generate an electronic invoice that will be sent to the customer. You can also export the electronic invoice as an XML file, which you can save to a specified location.

The following procedure describes how to generate electronic invoices for sales invoices, but the same steps also apply to service invoices and credit memos.

To generate electronic invoices for sales invoices

  1. Choose the Search for Page or Report icon, enter Posted Sales Invoice, and then choose the related link.

  2. Select the posted invoice.

  3. Choose the Send Electronic Document action. An email will be sent to the customer with the electronic invoice attached as an XML file. If you selected the Send PDF Report field on the General Ledger Setup page, a PDF will be included with the XML file.
