Receiving e-Invoice information leads to the following,

  1. The incoming XML is transformed to a schema called IFSEinvoice. This schema is an external schema but with a few modifications for IFS e-Invoice functionality.
  2. The XML according to the IFSEinvoice schema is transformed to an internal receive e-invoice XML schema, for further processing.

The zip file ReceiveEInvoiceSamples contains,

  1. IFSEinvoice.xml
  2. IFSEinvoice.xsd
  3. IFSReceiveEinvoice.xml
  4. IFSReceiveEinvoice.xsd
