Announcing SEF Version 3.7 Update for Serbia!

The updates and new features in version 3.7 of the Electronic Invoicing System (SEF) in Serbia. This update brings several new features and improvements to enhance your e-invoicing experience. Here’s a summary of the functionalities and changes included in this update. Please note, that no additional customizations are required for users accessing SEF via the application interface.


Contents of Delivery

1. CSV Data Export

  • Implemented the ability to generate data from the list of incoming and outgoing documents in CSV format.

  • The CSV report includes fields such as Document ID, E-invoice link, E-invoice number, type of e-invoice, CRF identifier and status, E-invoice status, recipient/issuer, amount, turnover date, release date, and currency.

  • The time range for data generation is limited to one calendar month, and the report language will match the platform's language setting (SRP/SRP/ENG).

  • If no data is available, the "Export to CSV" option will not be accessible.

2. New Public API Method

  • A new method `GET/api/publicApi/getEfakturaVersion` has been created to return the current version of SEF. The method returns the version in the format: Version: 3.7

3. User Interface and PDF Label Changes

  • The label "Payment date" on the advance account input section has been changed to "Date of issue."

  • The corresponding label on the external PDF view of the invoice has also been changed to "Date of issue of the selected advance invoice."

4. Central Register of Invoices (CRF)

  • The electronic invoice is recorded in the CRF at the end of the sending process, ensuring it is successfully sent in SEF before being recorded in CRF.

5. Delivery Section Usage

  • The Delivery section can now be used for both increase and decrease documents in all types of electronic invoices sent as XML.

  • The Delivery section can contain the turnover date (BT-72 Actual delivery date) only for specific invoice document types.

  • Validation messages and error codes are provided for incorrect usage of delivery dates.

  8. Document Sending Bug Fix: Fixed a bug preventing document sending if the recipient field is changed from a public fund beneficiary to a non-public sector user.

  9. Reduction Document Creation: Users can create reduction documents if the referenced document is in "Sent," "Approved," or "Rejected" status.

  10. Validation for Non-Budget Customers: Introduced validation for invoices specifying a JBKJS for non-budget customers, returning appropriate error messages.

  11. Download All Bug Fix: Fixed a bug preventing the download of all documents for an electronic invoice when multiple attachments have the same name.

  12. Account Activation Prevention: Users cannot activate a deleted entity account by refreshing data in the "Settings" section.
