Invoices to SGU

All purchases within the public sector are required by law to be electronically invoiced (e-invoicing) according to a new European standard. This means that all suppliers to Geological Survey of Sweden (Sveriges geologiska undersökning, SGU) must send e-invoices that comply with the new standard. Please note that PDF is not an approved format.


At the Geological Survey of Sweden, SGU, we have introduced a new financial and accounting system from 1 January 2023.

Invoices sent to SGU therefore need to include new codes and information. Please help us to ensure that our handling of your invoices will be correct and efficient by including the information required for the new SGU system.

The table shows the necessary information to be included.
