New requirements for sustainability reporting by companies

The new EU Corporate Sustainability Reporting Directive requires companies to report in detail on how they deal with social and environmental challenges in their annual financial statements in future.
The revised Directive (EU) 2022/2464 has been in force since the beginning of 2023 and must be transposed into national law by the EU member states by mid-2024. The new version is intended to give sustainability information the same status as a company’s financial information.


Electronic invoices will be mandatory in the B2B sector in future. Corresponding VAT regulations are contained in the Growth Opportunities Act, which was published in the Federal Law Gazette on 27 March 2024.

With an e-invoice, invoice information is transmitted electronically, received automatically and processed further. This enables end-to-end digital processing from the creation of the invoice to the payment of the invoice amounts.

Current regulations and planned changes to (electronic) working time recording in Germany – Effects on the compensation of overtime

According to the German Working Hours Act, only overtime and Sunday work had to be documented until now, not all working hours. Following the landmark ruling by the Federal Labor Court (BAG) on September 13, 2022, there is now an immediate obligation in Germany to systematically record all working time – regardless of the planned amendment to the Federal Working Hours Act. The parties to collective bargaining agreements and companies will continue to decide on the specific companies’ arrangements.

This was preceded by the ECJ ruling on the recording of working time from 14.5.2019 (C -55/18 [“CCOO”]), according to which the member states are obliged to introduce an objective, reliable and accessible system to measure the daily working time worked by each employee.
