    In early November 2017, a business decision was made to defer the below outlined EDI finance documents and receipt advice, until further notice;

    1. Recipient Created Tax Invoice (RCTI)

    2. Receipt Advice (RECADV)

    3. Remittance Advice (REMADV)

    4. SoA, Return to vendors, general adjustments (INVOICE)*

    5. Rebate reports (FINSTA)

    * Note: The e-Invoice document will remain as is.

    The reason for this business decision was due to the lack of interest from the wider group of suppliers at this stage.
    Any future decisions to progress with the above documents will be communicated to our suppliers accordingly.
