1.1 Definition of Non-tax Financial Electronic Bills
Non-tax financial electronic bills (financial e-bills) refer to the digital documents in electronic form that are issued, stored, transmitted, and received using computer and network technologies after administrative organizations (hereinafter referred to as "payee organizations") receive governmental non-tax revenue or any payments for non-profit activities under the supervision of finance authorities. An e-bill has all the basic elements of a paper-based bill, including title, bill ID, bill code, payer, receipt items, standards, amount, issuing organization, issuer, date of issuance, and signatures/stamps (in electronic form) of the issuing organization/issuer and supervising finance authority. The financial e-bills generated in accordance with the requirements of the "Standardization of Basic Work of Accounting " and the "The Accounting Archives Management Measures" are the original evidences of organizations' incoming and outgoing payments in financial accounting, and provide an important basis for the financial and auditing authorities in their supervision and inspection.
1.2 Existing Problems and Solutions
After making non-tax revenue payments to administrative organizations (payee organizations), users will request the physical non-tax revenue bills to use for reimbursement and archiving, but physical bills are prone to being lost or damaged. Replacing paper bills with e-bills can avoid such problems and make it easier for users to collect, store, and manage bills and improve the efficiency of the reimbursement process. For payee organizations, requesting paper-based bills from local finance bureaus can be both cost- and time-consuming. In addition, printing such bills involves a high cost. The use of e-bills provides a more environmental-friendly approach, and can save costs and manpower for the administrative authorities.
