Paper invoices sent to Bayer‘s accounts payable department are scanned before being entered into the relevant systems. Therefore it is very important that the invoice document is of high quality and easy to read. We recommend that the invoice is on white A4 or US Letter size paper, clearly printed in black and white and that highlighter pens are not used.
Paper invoices should be sent to the address specified on the purchase order. In general, the invoice has to meet all legal requirements.
Furthermore, to avoid delay in payment, it is important that the invoice includes the following mandatory information which should match the details provided in the purchase order (PO):
The invoice should list separately the net value of goods and services, the rate and amount of VAT, and the total/gross value of the invoice.
Please note that any invoice which does not comply with the above requirements will be returned to the supplier for resubmission. This may lead to a delay in payment. Correct Invoicing for On-time Payment To ensure timely and accurate handling of your delivery and payment of your invoice(s), we request that all suppliers fully comply with the following instructions:
Any missing information or deviations from the above can lead to longer internal processing times which therefore may lead to delays in payment.
Payment terms are negotiated with suppliers in advance. Invoices are always paid according to the negotiated payment terms provided in the purchase order issued by Bayer.
In case of a discrepancy in the purchase order payment terms please contact the respective Bayer representative. Payment Queries In case of payment-related queries, please refer to the contact details and local working hours listed in the Addresses & contacts per Bayer subsidiary list (PDF, 219 KB).
