Purchase to pay information USA and Canada



What is ERS?

The evaluated receipt settlement (ERS) or credit note procedure is a self-billing method that ensures payment upon goods receipt / service receipt based on purchase order information without any invoicing activities. Special monitoring procedures ensure goods receipts are booked without need for external reminders.


Main advantage of the ERS are better on-time payment ratio with less effort:

  • Elimination of invoicing activity for our suppliers
  • Elimination of invoice verification activitiy for Evonik and therefore eliminated risk of payment delays
  • Benefit of closer monitoring of missing goods receipts
