Version 2


    In order to meet the current legal and tax requirements in the automotive industry, the Association of the German Automotive Industry (VDA) has developed the VDA 4938 standard. With this standardized format in place, the transmission of invoices / credit notes between the companies can be implemented quickly. 

     Daimler uses the VDA recommended Global INVOIC D.07A format (included in VDA4938 T2). Upon successful testing, an EDI agreement between the sender and receiver is mandatory.





    • Standardized format in the automotive industry - can be used also for many other recipients


    • Very convenient to transmit high number of documents


    • Confirmation messages (type "APERAK") ensure full control and transparency for the Invoice Sender
