Supplier Invoice Standard Requirements
Trane Technologies is driving strategic improvements in the way we purchase and pay for goods and services. One of the benefits of these changes is more consistent, on-time payments to suppliers. The following information is intended for suppliers that provide materials and/or services to Trane Technologies' locations and provides the standard requirements your invoice must meet in order to receive payment from Trane Technologies. Please review with all personnel involved with customer invoicing and update your billing system(s) as appropriate.
North America - General Policies
- Failure to provide accurate invoice detail and information in accordance with Trane Technologies requirements may result in payment issues and delays, including returned invoices.
- In the absence of a written agreement, the Purchase Order (PO) is the official legal agreement. Upon receipt of a PO, the supplier should review and confirm the PO. All PO questions and/or discrepancies should be directed to the Trane Technologies Procurement Administrator ‘buyer’ listed on the PO.
- Trane Technologies requires a PO for all direct material inventory purchases and most indirect goods and services expense purchases. If you are not provided with a PO when a Trane Technologies' employee makes a purchase request, please request a PO at that time.
- All invoices must contain a valid PO number. If a valid PO number is not obtained at the time of the order, and the Trane Technologies Contact cannot be reached, the Invoice MUST reference a Trane Technologies Employee Name and Trane Technologies email address.
- Invoices will be paid in accordance with Trane Technologies standard terms and conditions.
- Trane Technologies' preferred method of payment is Electronic Funds Transfer.
Important notes for Pay on Receipt (POR) transactions:
- Pay on Receipt is a process whereby invoices for payment of goods or services are automatically generated based on receipt transactions. Invoice vouchers are automatically created using a combination of receipt and purchase order information, eliminating the need for manual invoice submission and data entry. POR automatically creates invoices with multiple items and distribution lines, and includes sales tax as applicable. Payment on Receipt is also known as Evaluated Receipt Settlement (“ERS”), Pay from Receipt (“PFR”) and Self Billing.
- Suppliers who are setup for POR
at one or more of our locations should NEVER submit manual invoices
to accounts payable for those locations issuing POR purchase orders,
as this will create a duplicate invoice and prevent or delay payment
