Create an invoice with tax value with Adobe Acrobat DC

You can use Adobe Acrobat DC (the free version of the software) to create electronic invoices.

Note: An electronic invoice (The 'tax value' notion relates to French standards) must be signed and time stamped with eIDAS qualified / RGS** certificates. See: Invoice signature.

Who's concerned?

The signature is handled manually therefore this procedure cannot apply to a large amount of invoices.

The procedure

The fist thing to do is configure Certigna time stamping server in the software.
