For Suppliers

Working with us as a Supplier

Contact: [email protected] (Mon – Thurs, 10am – 3pm, Central European Time)

Our suppliers are integral to our business. This page is designed to give you all the information you need about working with us as a supplier or partner.

Onboarding process

Before we can conduct business with you, we will need to onboard you as a supplier. You should receive an e-mail from [email protected] requesting the information needed, be it a Standard or Enhanced onboarding process.

Once your supplier approval form has been submitted it takes approximately 5 working days for you to be set up as a supplier and you will be given a Vendor Number. This should be clearly marked in all invoices you send to us, to avoid delays.

If any risks are identified, this process may take longer whilst those issues are addressed.

Purchase Orders

You should not be conducting any work for any ABA Group company without first having an approved Purchase Order. 

It can take up to 10 working days for a purchase order to be approved and active in our global system. You will receive an automated email from Odoo, our RFQ/PO service, notifying you when your Purchase Order is ready.

Any invoices pre-dating your PO may be rejected or cause delays in processing.

You must quote your PO and Vendor number in your invoice in order for a payment to be made. This is subject to our standard Supplier terms and conditions which are available and should be reviewed here.

Supplier Policies

We operate an ethical and sustainable sourcing policy and require all our suppliers, contractors or partners to subscribe to our Anti-Bribery and Corruption Policy, Hospitality Policy, Data Privacy Arrangements and Code of Conduct.

These policies are available from your Business Contact. 

Our usual invoice terms are between 45 – 60 days depending on the risk level identified by our procurement partner. Sometimes, for international transactions or more complex business arrangements, this process may take longer.

Please note that no individual staff members at ABA have sole control or influence over our payment processes and we cannot answer queries on individual invoices prior to your PO payment date.
