Any other information about payment terms

Due to our inability to date track documents in to our business, we have had to use the supplier document date, as the basis for our statistics. This will go some way towards explaining the percentage of late payments. There are a large number of suppliers who are paid on a sell through basis, with payment terms of 7 days - leaving little time to turnaround queries, or issue payments when invoice submission is late.

Dispute resolution process

GAME Retail Ltd values strong collaborative relationships across our supplier base, and we place high importance on ensuring queries are resolved in a timely manner. In the first instance vendors will raise a dispute with the Accounts Payable team. If the GAME/ supplier transactional teams are unable to resolve the query with the information provided it will then be escalated to the relevant Commercial contacts in both businesses for review.
