Frequently Asked Questions

Payment Process

Do I have to change the way I invoice today?
No. The existing process that a supplier performs to invoice the buyer still remains in place.

Once enrolled, will all invoices be paid through the program? 
For all those Siemens’ Buyers offering the program to their suppliers, once enrolled, all the existing and new invoices will be available for early payment. The program provides the flexibility for suppliers to request early payment for all invoices (Automatic Discounting option) or manually select individual invoices (Manual Discounting option). 

How do I get paid?

The funds will be electronically transferred into the supplier’s bank account that is listed in the program’s enrollment documentation. 

When do I get paid?

If the supplier is enrolled with the Automatic Discounting option, once an invoice is approved for payment within Siemens, the payment will be made in 2 business days. If the supplier is enrolled with the Manual Discounting option, once an invoice is approved for payment within Siemens, the payment will be made 2 business days after an invoice(s) is selected for early payment.

Pre-Enrollment

Frequently asked questions:

What is the cost of this program?
The only cost of the program is the "discount charge" that a supplier pays to receive early payment. There are no fees to join, maintain or exit the program.

Can a supplier enroll if their Account Receivables are currently pledged as collateral in a loan?
Yes. In addition to completing the standard enrollment documentation, the supplier will be provided a “Consent Agreement” that will need to be completed by their bank allowing them to participate.

Post-Enrollment

Frequently asked questions:

Once enrolled, who should the supplier contact if certain invoice(s) are not visible in the program?
The supplier should visit the Siemens IOL Portal (http://www.siemensap.com) and submit an inquiry for the invoice(s) in question. This is the most effective method to enable the Siemens AP department to research the inquiry and they will be notified when a resolution is reached or further information is required. 

Once enrolled, can a supplier decide to not participate in the program?
Yes. The supplier is not obligated to stay in the program for any fixed period. A 30 day written notice must be submitted by the supplier to Orbian after which they will be removed from the program.
