There are several invoice discrepancies that may exist in invoices, and the commercial and cost impact of these issues may be significant. Some of the common flags raised during invoice reconciliation relate to:

  • Additional shipping or packing charges, not agreed to
  • Discounts not applied per agreed slabs
  • Overpriced invoices- applied new prices, instead of contract price
  • Bank charges or Currency exchange fees/variances
  • Applicable penalties not applied (E.g. Delayed delivery)
  • Credit notes or advance payments not applied
  • Credit terms not as per PO
  • Duplicate invoices

Reconciling invoices is often a tedious and time-consuming process but is always worth the effort considering the cost implications.
