Invoice of Rendered Services

When selling services to a business you are typically required to create an “Invoice of Rendered Services”. According to the myDATA specifications, service invoices are further divided into three invoice types, depending on the country that the client operates in.

This guide demonstrates how to create service invoices for clients located in Greece (myDATA document type “2.1 Invoice of Rendered Services”)

Make sure the integration with myDATA or SoftOne is activated in your Elorus account before using the guide below. If not, feel free to contact the Elorus support team for more information regarding the activation of the integration.

Authorization variables


1.1 Create a new contact

- The guide assumes you’re working on a new Elorus organization, so this step can be omitted.

First lets create a contact so there is someone to bill. In a business context, contacts are individuals or businesses whom you transact with; typically your clients, leads, suppliers and partners. Since Elorus will let you manage your sales as well as your expenses, a contact may represent either a client or a supplier (or even both).

curl -X POST -H "Content-Type: application/json" -H "Authorization: Token ~Your-API-key~" -H "X-Elorus-Organization: ~Your-Organization-ID~" -d '{"client_type": "1", "company":"Elorus BC", "vat_number":"9876543210", "addresses":[{"address":"Theofilopoulou 13", "city":"Athens", "zip":"11743", "country": "GR", "ad_type": "bill"}], "is_client": true, "is_supplier":false}'

1.2 Get contact ID

Filter e.g. by “company”, to get the contact ID. Retrieved contact ID in this case is “2482013152640763215”.

curl -X GET -H "Content-Type: application/json" -H "Authorization: Token ~Your-API-key~" -H "X-Elorus-Organization: ~Your-Organization-ID~""Elorus BC"

Document type

2.1 Get document type ID

In this case, an “Invoice of rendered services” document type will be needed. There is an “Invoice of rendered services” document type pre-created.
Default title is “Τιμολόγιο παροχής υπηρεσιών”. Search by “title”, to get the document type ID. Retrieved document type ID in this case is “2482015687594214605”.
In case the title is changed or the document type is missing, use the Elorus UI to create a new one.

curl -X GET -H "Content-Type: application/json" -H "Authorization: Token ~Your-API-key~" -H "X-Elorus-Organization: ~Your-Organization-ID~""Τιμολόγιο παροχής υπηρεσιών"&search_fields=title


3.1 About taxes

By default there are some taxes preset in Elorus. Usually 24% tax is used for Greece “Invoice of rendered services” so the preset tax will be retrieved and used. In case there is a need for a new tax to be created, use of Elorus' UI is mandatory.
Optional steps to create new tax:

  1. Login to your Elorus account
  2. Go to: “Settings -> Taxes”
  3. Click “+Add” on top right corner
  4. And set it up as the picture below. AADE category and title used are for example purposes.
  5. Click “Save”

3.2 Get taxes ID

Search by “percentage”, to get the tax ID. Retrieved tax ID in this case is “2476911428611605999”. Make sure that “aade_type”:1 is in the response packet.

curl -X GET -H "Content-Type: application/json" -H "Authorization: Token ~Your-API-key~" -H "X-Elorus-Organization: ~Your-Organization-ID~""24"&search_fields=percentage

Invoice creation

4.1 Create Invoice of rendered services

The final step, is to create the Invoice itself. The list below describes all the needed fields.

  1. X-Elorus-Organization: your organization ID
  2. calculator_mode: sets your values as “initial” or “total”, meaning before or after taxes.
    1. When “total” is used, then it is mandatory to use “unit_total” in items.
    2. When “initial” is used, then it is mandatory to use “unit_value” in items.
    3. Depending on the situation, Elorus will calculate the taxes accordingly.
  3. client: Client id - In this case we created “Elorus BC” contact.
  4. draft: true or false depending on the need to issue immediately an invoice or not. If true, the invoice will not reach MyData/Softone, until issued.
  5. documenttype: Document Type ID - In this case we used “Τιμολόγιο παροχής υπηρεσιών” document type, associated with the corresponding “aade type”.
  6. My data specific fields: mydata_document_type - mydata_classification_category - mydata_classification_type - paid_on_receipt - payment_method
    1. mydata_document_type: aade type
    2. mydata_classification_category: income type aade
    3. mydata_classification_type: classifications of Ε3 aade
    4. paid_on_receipt: Invoice amount that was paid when invoice was issued. If “0” then you don’t need to send payment_method since Elorus will automatically apply payment_method as on credit.
    5. payment_method:
      1. “1”: Domestic Payments Account
      2. “2”: Foreign Payments Account
      3. “3”: Cash
      4. “4”: Cheque
      5. “6”: Web Banking
      6. “7”: POS / e-POS
