The Finnish Food Safety Authority handles and files their accounts payable invoices only as e-invoices, in accordance with the goal set by the Ministry of Finance and the instructions (VK 66/03/2012) issued by the State Treasury. We request that you send your invoices electronically from now on via Itella Information Oy which is the e-invoicing operator of the State administration.
As the invoices are circulated internally in Evira, we ask that you make sure that the name of the client and the ordering unit (costing unit) and other details that will make it easier to process the payment, are on the invoice as reference.
According the General Terms of Public Procurement in supply contracts all payments shall be paid against an invoice. If not otherwise agreed, the invoice shall be due for payment twenty-one (21) days from the arrival of an acceptable invoice.
