Forward-looking & EU-compliant Invoice Creation and Reading of Invoice Data

ZUGFeRD 2.1.1/2.1/2.0/1.0
ZUGFeRD 2.1.1 additionally offers the "XRechnung" profile, the PDF Xpansion SDK also supports this profile, i.e. a total of 6 profiles for this standard. ZUGFeRD as of version 2.0 is "fully compliant" in the sense of the European standard EN 16931-1. The PDF Xpansion SDK also supports all five profiles defined for ZUGFeRD 2.1 and 2.0 versions.
ZUGFeRD 1.0 is not fully compliant with EN 16931-1, but is already widely used for automated processing. PDF Xpansion SDK supports all three profiles: EXTENDED, COMFORT, BASIC.

XRechnung 2.1.1/2.0.1/2.0/1.2.2
Is the German public sector standard and is based on the EU standard EN 16931. Invoices according to this standard are XML files without visual representation. With PDF Xpansion SDK you can create these XRechnung XMLs directly, as well as using the “XRechnung” profile in the context of the ZUGFeRD 2.1.1 standard, a corresponding XML file embedded in a PDF/A-3 file. The UN/CEFACT syntax is supported by the PDF Xpansion SDK for creating and reading invoices. The UBL syntax is supported for importing invoice data (invoice receipt).

The French invoice standard conforms to EN 16931-1 and is technically identical to ZUGFeRD 2.1.1/2.0. The PDF Xpansion SDK supports all 5 profiles: EXTENDED, EN 16931, BASIC, BASIC WL and MINIMUM.
