- Thomson Reuters Uses Ariba to Transact With Our Suppliers
Thomson Reuters uses Ariba, a third-party electronic transaction processing tool, to manage the supplier onboarding process and issue and manage purchase orders (POs) and invoices.
We accept both no fee Light Account and the fee-based Fully Enabled Ariba options. Suppliers electing to use the Fully Enabled Ariba option will be required to absorb any associated Ariba charges.
All suppliers located in the countries or regions listed below must use Ariba (unless otherwise noted) when transacting with Thomson Reuters:
United Arab Emirates
You can access Ariba training and additional support materials here.
If your purchase order is dated before 30th September, 2017 and/or if your country is not listed above, you will be required to submit your invoice to a regional Document Receiving Centre (DRC). To avoid delay to the payment of your invoice, please ensure you follow the instructions closely on How to Submit Non-Ariba Invoices.
Submission of invoices for goods & services must be sent within seven (7) business days from service completion date or shipment of goods as requested on the purchase order.
Please note that the Thomson Reuters standard payment terms are 50 days from the date of the invoice submitted to the Account Payables team. For details specific to your country, please refer to the Purchase Order Terms & Conditions of Purchase. All suppliers transacting with Thomson Reuters are required to comply with the Thomson Reuters Supply Chain Ethical Code.
Ariba is the approved global tool for purchasing goods and services at Thomson Reuters. We have alternative payment methods available which can be used in place of Ariba when advised by Global Sourcing. The alternative purchasing channels can vary dependant on the type of goods or services being purchased. Please contact your Thomson Reuters business partner to find out more.
