Different invoice versions

The invoice message is available in a number of versions:

  • BEAst Trade invoice message; produced from a Nordic template and covers all requirements in all Nordic countries.
  • BEAst Construction Invoice; a simpler version of the BEAst Trade invoice, which means it does not have as much content. However, it is suitable for most cases, and is recommended by a all major construction companies.

Both invoices are very similar, but nevertheless have their specified area of application.
