EDI is the part of an electronic invoice address that identifies the recipient.
Electronical Data Interchange ID (EDI) is the most common electronic invoice address format in Finland. It is the part of electronic invoice addresses that identifies the recipient and ensures that the invoices are forwarded correctly.
The second part of an electronic invoice address is the operator ID that helps the invoice to reach the right operator.
The Electronical Data Interchange ID (EDI) consists of the Finnish Tax Administration's ID 0037 + the company's business ID without the hyphen (8 characters), as well as an optional specifier (up to 5 characters). The length of an EDI is 12–17 characters. You can search for the EDIs of recipients in the public electronic invoice address database.
Please note that the EDI is not the only possible format for an electronic invoice address. The EDI may be preceded by letters, or the address might be in another format altogether, such as IBAN.
