Today we are going to take a closer look at the invoice numbering system used by Superfaktura.
I would like to emphasize that the numbering format used by Superfaktura is not something we want to force upon you. However, we found the currently used numbering format to be the most convenient and also very helpful in preventing some of the commonly occurring errors during business administration.
The first version of Superfaktura uses the format YYYYNNN, e.g. 2011034, which translates to 34th invoice of the year 2011. Later on, we intend to add additional numbering formats that you would prefer, but right now lets have a look at the benefits of the default numbering format provided by Superfaktura.
Automatic invoice numbering – the system ensures that the assigned number is always in chronological sequence with the rest. Although, it sounds simple, adding 1 to the previous number does not always work. Imagine a case when we add the past invoices, which were not done in Superfaktura, to the system. In this scenario, the whole numbering system becomes out of order. However, thanks to Superfaktura’s Sequencer (tool which ensures that all the number are in sequence) you do not have to worry about the numbers becoming out of order, as long as you stick to the default numbering format.
Continuity check – Dealing with tax authorities is at best exhausting, but it can become a nightmare when you do not have all your documents in chronological order. As you probably know, the invoice number 1 cannot be issued after the invoice number 2. In order to make your life easier, Superfaktura checks all the dates and makes sure that the previously mentioned case does not occur.
