Summary

Every business which sells goods or provides services to a public authority must submit invoices electronically.

In Denmark, the invoices must be submitted by using the Offentlig (Public) Information Online Universal Business Language (OIOUBL) format.

In Norway, the invoices must be submitted by using the Elektronisk Handelsformat (EHF) format.

As part of the current design for the Danish OIOUBL electronic invoice format and for the Norwegian EHF electronic invoice format, the Quantity Unit.Code field is used in Invoices and on Credit Note lines.

To use unit codes that meet the requirements of the OIOUBL and EHF formats, you must set up the units for external codes in Microsoft Dynamics AX as follows.
