The Monte Carlo event generator BabaYaga has been developed in the last decade for high precision simulation of QED processes (e+e− → e+e−, e+e− → μ+μ− and e+e− → γγ) at flavour factories, mainly for luminometry purposes, with an estimated theoretical accuracy at the 0.1% level or better. The relevant QED radiative corrections are included by means of a QED Parton Shower matched with exact next-to-leading order corrections to reach the required accuracy. The main theoretical framework is overviewed and the status of the generator is summarized.
