PDF2PDFA .NET Converter – Version 1.7.0 – ZUGFeRD 2.1.1 with XRechnungs profile

ZUGFeRD is a hybrid format and contains the structured invoice data in a PDF/A-3 file. This is used for visual presentation, printing and archiving. The structured XML invoice data embedded in it can be read out and processed by the recipient.

The PDF2PDFA converter enables the conversion of existing PDF into ZUGFeRD compliant documents. However, the XML file to be embedded must already be available in accordance with the required standard and is not generated by the PDF2PDFA converter itself.

In the new version of ZUGFeRD 2.1.1, another profile is made available with the XRechnungs profile. This new XRechnungs profile corresponds to the special requirements of the public administration in Germany. Not only does it meet the requirements of the European standard EN16931, it also includes the national business rules and administrative provisions of the German XRechnung standard. The new, dedicated XRechnungs profile clearly distinguishes between requirements in Germany and at European level (e.g. for mandatory fields and information within the invoice).

PDF2PDFA – smaller PDF/A files – font compression, 200dpi rendering of transparencies

PDF2PDFA innovations:

  • Smaller PDF/A files: The PDF/A standard requires that the fonts used in PDF are fully or partially embedded. The new PDF2PDFA converter embeds them compressed, which means that the size of the PDF/A generated is much smaller, especially for large and large fonts.
  • The PDF/A-1b standard does not allow transparent elements. In order to be able to convert such PDFs to PDF/A-1b, transparencies have to be resolved. This is done by rendering, in which overlapping elements are added together and reduced. In order not to let the PDF/A-1b file size grow too large in such a case, the previously preset resolution was reduced from 300dpi to 200dpi.
  • ZUGFeRD XML via variable: For the path, folder and name of the invoice XML, variables can be used which are assigned the path, folder and name of the generated PDF file. This means that the XML associated with a PDF can be dynamically “found” and embedded.

PDF2PDFA .NET Converter Component – Version 1.1.0

Conversion to PDF/A-1a, 2a, 3a:

As of version 1.1.0, PDF files can now also be converted to PDF/A-1a, 2a and 3a. It should be noted, however, that not every PDF file can be converted and that an automatic conversion is only possible or only meaningful if the input file already contains the required structure information / tags. For example a PDF file can be created from MS-Word via the “Save as / PDF” function which already contains this required additional structure.

     

ZUGFeRD – Level configurable:

The ZUGFeRD standard supports 3 different levels – BASIC, COMFORT and EXTENDED. There is now a parameter that can be used to specify which level corresponds to the XML to be embedded. This information is then also transferred to the PDF metadata.
