Dematerialization of supplier invoices !

Dear Suppliers,

You certainly know already that from January 1, 2024, all companies will have to switch to electronic invoicing (incoming dematerialization of invoices).

Now, it’s the right time to prepare the transition from paper to digital invoices!

To be able to manage supplier invoices received electronically, Groupe Rocher has set up a SmartBuy supplier portal with which you are already familiar now. It will allow us to perform the three steps of the dematerialization of the supplier invoice required by the legislation:

1/ The acquisition of the invoice in a digital format.

2/ The validation of the invoice to trigger its payment.

3/ Electronic archiving of the invoice.

In order to facilitate the transition, we invite you to take the first step, namely to switch from paper format to digital format.

We therefore ask you to switch to PDF format (unprotected) starting from now.

This would allow to:

  • Extract all invoicing data such as date, supplier, order references, VAT number, amounts, taxes, currency, detail lines;
  • Ensure data integrity.

And to ensure & facilitate the processing of invoices at the best, please do not forget:

  • The purchase order number must appear on your invoice (in the case you don’t have it, you may indicate the billing entity number and the name of your contact within the Rocher Group)
  • Your invoices must be sent in PDF format (unprotected mode; one single invoice and its appendices per one PDF document)
  • Your invoices must be sent to the unique address  :

The Groupe Rocher Group Procurement Department and Finance Department remain available to help you and answer to your questions.

Thank your in advance for your understanding and your collaboration!
