The Access Group Malaysia offers free eInvoicing for active customers

UBS accounting, billing, and inventory users to participate in eInvoicing beta testing in June, before official market launch

KUALA LUMPUR, MALAYSIA – Media OutReach Newswire – 28 May 2024 – The Access Group (“Access”) today announced its readiness to offer eInvoicing, tailored specifically for UBS software, the premier choice for over 100,000 SMEs in Malaysia. UBS has been continually developed in line with market requirements over three decades, and eInvoicing is the latest advanced feature to be rolled out.

This announcement comes as the impending LHDN regulations are set to roll out gradually from August 2024, and underscores Access’ dedication to global digital transformation via ongoing investments in digital infrastructure and best-in-class software in the APAC region.

Spearheaded by a partnership with the Malaysia Digital Economy Corporation (MDEC), the establishment of a Global Operation Centre (GO Centre) in Kuala Lumpur this year demonstrates the company’s commitment to advancing digital capabilities on a global scale, driven from APAC.

Access has submitted its Peppol-Ready Solution Providers (PRSP) application to MDeC, and the due diligence assessment has been completed, pending a solution demonstration as the final step for market readiness.

General Manager of ERP APAC, Evan Puzey, said the company’s commitment to customers in the region is clear.

“Our top priority is our customers, so we’re providing the UBS eInvoicing feature free of charge to active users of our UBS account, billing, and inventory modules providing there is no third-party costs involved from the government agencies or their partners.

“Hundreds of submission requests are flowing in from a wide array of companies varying in size, structure, and industry, and we’re confident in our readiness to accommodate all segments of our customer base for the upcoming beta testing phase.

“As we gear up to commence beta testing with selected customers in June, we’re excited to embark on this eInvoicing journey, poised to provide cutting-edge solutions that cater to the evolving needs of our customers and businesses in the region.

“Backed by a robust network of more than 100 business partners in Malaysia, Access UBS Software ensures customers have access to best-in-market products and services tailored to their specific requirements.

“Access remains committed to its mission of providing innovative solutions that enable businesses to thrive in today’s dynamic market. With a focus on enhancing efficiency, ensuring compliance, and fostering growth, Access continues to set industry benchmarks in financial management software solutions,” Mr Puzey concluded.
