Caronte & Tourist Group

Electronic Invoice

You are here


From 1st January 2019 the invoice for a Caronte & Tourist Group ticket can be requested only at the time of ticket purchase.

The invoice will be in electronic format.


What is the electronic invoice?

The 2018 Budget Law introduced the obligation of electronic invoicing for the supply of goods and services provided between residents, established or identified in the territory of the state.

Electronic invoicing is a digital system for issuing, transmitting and storing invoices that allows you to abandon paper support and all related management costs.

The new format in which electronic invoices must be produced, transmitted, saved and stored by the Revenue Agency is digital (XML format), a computer language that allows the definition and control of the meaning of the elements contained in a document, thus verifying the information for the purposes of the checks required by law.

Starting from 1st January 2019, all invoices must be transmitted only through the Interchange System (SDI), according to the technical rules set by the Revenue Agency.

Invoices issued in different ways will be considered as not issued, with consequent responsibilities both for the supplier and the customer.

In order to be able to fulfill this obligation and, in particular, to be able to receive the invoice, each customer must have at least one of the following communication channels:

  • PEC address, certified electronic mail;
  • Recipient Code (it is released by the SDI upon request, and is composed of 7 alphanumeric digits).

Customers who are exclusively in possession of the Tax Code, as persons, will receive the electronic invoice on their e-mail address (not necessarily certified) and, upon registration c / o the Revenue Agency, will find the same invoice in their own drawer tax.
