FAQs
Who can register for DBS InvoiceNow?

Your company’s IDEAL Administrators and Transaction Approvers will be able to register on behalf of your company.

How are my user entitlements assigned on IDEAL? Can I change it?

Each user’s entitlements have been pre-allocated according to your existing IDEAL transaction entitlements. For example, a user who is a payment maker is also an invoice maker. You may use the Customer Self-Administration module on IDEAL to make changes to your user entitlements.

My company is still on the old IDEAL interface. Can I use DBS InvoiceNow?

DBS InvoiceNow is only available to companies on the new IDEAL interface. Please reach out to your DBS Relationship Manager to upgrade to the new IDEAL.

What is my Peppol ID?

A Peppol ID is your company’s unique identifier on the Peppol directory. A Singapore-registered company listed on the Singapore Peppol directory will have a Peppol ID of 0195:SGUEN<company UEN>. For example, if your company’s UEN is 200500001A, your Peppol ID will be 0195:SGUEN200500001A.

Alternatively you can find your Peppol ID by entering your UEN in the Search field here: https://www.peppoldirectory.sg/

Can I stop using the DBS InvoiceNow service at any time? Will there be a penalty fee?

Yes you can. There is no penalty fee.

How is InvoiceNow different from my existing invoicing method?

Currently, your invoices could be in a hard copy document or PDF format that you send and receive via email or postal service. Manual processing is required by both parties to input the invoice details in your respective systems, this is time consuming and may result in human error. InvoiceNow reduces manual work and is a safer method of invoice exchange as an e-invoice is encrypted and sent directly via the Peppol network to the recipient's InvoiceNow approved system.

If my customer is not registered on Peppol, can I still send e-invoices to them?

To send or receive e-invoices, both parties will need to be on the Peppol network with a valid Peppol ID. You can request your customer to register themselves to Peppol network via an Access Point provider / platforms that are Peppol ready.
