For supplier to Forskningsrådet
General information on electronic invoices to Forskningsrådet
EHF, which similar to BIS PEPPOL, is the Norwegian official standard for electronic invoicing. Under the Digitalization Circular, the Research Council of Norway is obliged, as a government agency, to fully digitalize its management of invoices and credit notes.
If you have not started using electronic invoices, we recommend that you contact your invoicing or accounting system supplier.
The invoice must contain one of the following:
1. Project number for invoices that concern research projects that receive funding from the Research Council
2. The initials of the contact person in the Research Council, which you can find, for example, in front of rcn.no at the customer's email address.
Foreign suppliers must use the format PEPPOL BIS. The country code 0192 must precede our organisation number as follows: 0192:970141669 (this is our participant ID).
How to enter and send electronic invoices
If you need to send a small number of invoices to the Research Council, you can log in and send them via this page. Register as a supplier to the Research Council in the form on the right. This solution is made for suppliers who do not have the functionality to send BIS PEPPOL invoices from their finance / accounting system and free to use.
If an invoice is returned, it is because the references provided are invalid. In such case, please contact the Research Council employee you have been in contact with and then correct the invoice with the correct references.
Register on the Invoice Portal
Here you can register on the Invoice Portal and enter invoices. After you have entered the invoice, an electronic invoice is generated and sent to Forskningsrådet.
After you have registered you will receive a welcome email with your login and a description of how to use the portal.
