Product Updates 422, 421, and 420: Route ID (Leitweg ID) supported for XRechnung (German legislation)

to the public authority that is responsible for tender issuance.
Route ID structure
The structure of the route ID consists of rough addressing,
fine addressing, and check digits.
The rough addressing contains an identifier for the federal

In the XML file, the <BuyerReference> tag is

tag during the invoice processing, but if the route ID has not been defined,
the Your ref. information will be reflected instead.
