Thomson Reuters uses Ariba to transact with our suppliers

Thomson Reuters uses Ariba, a third-party electronic transaction processing tool, to issue and manage Purchase Orders (POs), invoices, and our supplier on-boarding process. Suppliers transacting with Thomson Reuters must use Ariba unless otherwise noted. We accept both the no-fee Light Account and the fee-based Full Enablement Ariba options. Suppliers electing to use the Full Enablement option will be required to absorb any associated Ariba charges.

If your purchase order is dated before September 30, 2017, you may continue to send invoices to the Document Receiving Centers (DRCs). Otherwise, invoices received by our Document Receiving Centers (DRCs) for purchase orders created from and including September 30, 2017 will be returned to sender for resubmission via Ariba. This could result in a delay to the payment of your invoice.

Using Ariba Light Account

Ariba Light Account is replacing the legacy Ariba Light Enablement which will be phased out by the end of December 2017. Ariba Light Account is no-fee based and will provide additional beneficial functionality for Thomson Reuters suppliers.

Ariba Light Account requires all suppliers to register with Ariba. 

You should not register for Ariba Light Account until you receive a Light Account Purchase Order (PO). You will be prompted to register for Ariba Light Account when you select “Process order” on your first Ariba Light Account PO. Access the training to the right for step by step instructions on how to register for Ariba Light Account.  

Light Account POs are dated from and including September 30, 2017.

If you have not received a Light Account purchase order:

  1. Please continue to upload invoices using the legacy “one time password” process.
  2. Upon receipt of an Ariba Light Account PO follow the steps above to register for a Light Account. 

Suppliers in countries where we have not enabled e-invoicing, or where e-invoicing is not permitted by law, should continue to send their invoices to the mailing address or email address in the “remit to” section of the purchase order.

Special Instructions for Purchase Order Invoices

Submission of invoices for payment by supplier’s invoices for goods and services must be sent directly to Accounts Payable within seven (7) business days from service completion date or shipment of goods as requested on the Purchase Order.

Please note that Thomson Reuters payment terms are standard 50 days from the date of the invoice submitted to Accounts Payable team. For details specific to your country, please refer to the Purchase Order Terms and Conditions of Purchase.
