Invoicing question for Greek clients and contractors

Hi I have a problem with the invoicing system on odesk and I don't know how to deal with this. As a contractor it's required by the greek tax authorities to send invoices with my tax details and the clients details (in this case odesk corporation) however I don't know when and how I should send an invoice (when I withdraw money from odesk or something else?).
I know that Odesk doesn't need invoices by me, but this is required by the greek tax authorities. Additionally tax authorities in Greece want me to get an official paper from any client who is out of E.U and doesn't have a VAT number in order to verify that it's a business (I know it's crazy but that's what is required here)
Additionally as a client who hires contractors on Odesk, I need invoices from Odesk with my Tax details (vat , name , adress etc) and Odesk tax details plus an official paper that Odesk is a business entity (yes I know it's ridiculous).
Another question I have is if I can mix the revenues from clients on Odesk with the expenses to contractors on Odesk and send Invoices only for the money I withdraw from Odesk (the profits) in order to avoid this Greek burocracy (I am both client and contractor)...
I would really appreciate if any greek who works with Odesk (Client or contractor) can tell me how he/she deals with all these, plus since Odesk's founders are Greeks it would be great if they could help their compatriots with these problems
Please don't tell me to take advices from my local accountant cause I have already done that and I couldn't get any further help...
