All vendors are required to generate a Tradestone invoice prior to shipping an order. Non-Tradestone invoices are accepted by exception only, prior agreement must be sought before submitting a non-Tradestone invoice. All invoices that are required for import purposes must be generated in Tradestone.
Please reference the Tradestone User Manual for instructions on how to generate your invoice. Please note, when the invoice is generated in Tradestone it should not be emailed to AP, it will automatically send to AP upon receipt of goods at the EU URBN facility. Please therefore ensure the invoice is generated prior to shipping the goods. Failure to do so will result in payment delays.
UK VAT registered vendors
UK VAT registered vendors are required to advise email@example.com that they need the functionality to add VAT to their commercial invoice. Different access to Tradestone is required for this functionality.
Please refer to the two following PDFs for further assistance with VAT and guidance on how to add VAT to a commercial invoice.
Payment Terms: All URBN UK LTD invoices are paid as per the terms outlined on your PO, this is generally NET 60 days after the point of receipt at our facility. Other payment terms are by exception only and should be agreed with the buying team prior to your PO being raised.
A Tradestone invoice must be generated for each purchase order, unless otherwise agreed. Delays in submitting invoices or failure to submit invoices via the Tradestone portal may result in a delay of payment.
In the event it has been agreed that you can submit your own invoice to our AP team (Domestic invoices only), then it must require the following information to be approved for payment:
- Invoice number
- Invoice date
- Remittance address
- URBN UK LTD. vendor number
- URBN UK LTD. purchase order number
- URBN UK LTD. SKU and color
- Product description
- Unit cost (inclusive of all discounts and allowances)
- Vendor item number
- Total amount owed
- Country of Origin
- VAT Number (Where applicable)
If you are under a factoring agreement, you must indicate your factor’s name and remittance address on the Tradestone invoice under the “Additional Information” section.
Note: The Payment of an invoice will not constitute acceptance of goods and will be subject to adjustments for errors, shortages, defects in the goods, or other failure of the vendor to meet the requirements of their agreement.
BILLING NAME/COMPANY LEGAL NAME CHANGES
If your billing name/company legal name is changing, please contact your buyer and EU VR Support immediately as changes to this information may impact existing purchase orders and result in payment delay.
