Legal notice

The Central Invoice Submission Portal (Zentrale Rechnungseingangsplattform, ZRE) allows companies and public authorities to centrally process incoming electronic invoices (e-invoices). Every effort is made to ensure that the information and functionalities provided here are correct, complete, up-to-date, clear and available at all times.

Nevertheless, please note the following disclaimers and restrictions.

1. External content

The links on this website to external content have been created by the Federal Ministry of Finance's website team to the best of its knowledge and with the greatest possible care. These links are intended only to provide access to external content. Particular attention has been paid to the trustworthiness of these external websites and to the accuracy and legality of their content.

Because online content is dynamic and can change at any time, however, it is not possible to constantly monitor the content of all the external websites that this website links to. The Federal Ministry of Finance therefore expressly disclaims responsibility for the content of external websites which are linked to from its own website. Any damage resulting from using, or failing to use, external content is exclusively the responsibility of the operator of the website in question. Obligations to remove or block the use of information in accordance with the general law remain unaffected. Any liability in this respect is, however, only possible as of the point in time that we become aware of a specific legal violation. Should a legal violation come to our attention, we will remove such content immediately.

2. Own content

Any legal provisions, official notices, recommendations and information appearing on this website are provided to the best of our knowledge and using the greatest possible care. However, in the event of any discrepancy, only the current official versions appearing in official publications designated for this purpose are legally valid. Any legal notices, recommendations or information provided on this website are not legally binding and do not constitute legal advice.

The Federal Ministry of Finance is not liable for any damage or legal violations resulting from using or failing to use the information provided here. No liability will be accepted for any damage or legal violations caused by computer viruses while accessing or downloading data or by the installation or use of software.

In the event of a breach of a material contractual obligation, liability will be borne for ordinary negligence, but only for direct damage. This limitation does not apply to personal injury.
