Self-Billing with Internal Approval

Bills are automatically routed for approval after invoices have been created via CSV or through the Tipalti API.

  1. Create bills via API or CSV.
  2. Route bills to internal finance team for approval.
  3. Execute payments according to payee preferences.
  4. Bills available for payees to view and download via the Tipalti Hub to comply with local tax requirements.

Self-Billing with Payee Approval

Bills are generated and marked as either pending payee approval or pending payee invoice (dependent on your country).

  1. Create bills via API or CSV (with VAT amount if applicable).
  2. Payees receive email to approve bills.
  3. Payee approves the bill or provides an invoice.
  4. Execute payments according to payee preferences.
  5. Bills are available for payees to view and download via the Tipalti Hub to comply with HMRC requirements.

Self-Billing with Both Party Approvals

You can also use a workflow that requires bills to be approved by both payer and payee.

  1. Create bills via API or CSV.
  2. Bills are approved by the payer.
  3. Payees receive email to approve bills.
  4. Payee approves the bill or provides an invoice.
  5. Execute payments according to payee preferences.
  6. Bills are available for payees to view and download via the Tipalti Hub to comply with tax requirements.
