Dispute resolution process
Molson Coors is committed to efficient invoice and payment processing.
We believe that it is important to provide our suppliers with a fair and transparent dispute resolution process which deals with what actions they can take if and when a dispute or concern arises. With this in mind, our suppliers are issued with a copy of our invoice process and dispute resolution process at the outset of the relationship.
Invoices with price and quantity discrepancies outside accepted tolerances will not be included in payment until the mismatch is resolved. All discrepancies are investigated internally by the buyers to verify if the invoice is correct or not; this is typically the person who placed the order with you. Our Accounts Payable Team will inform you of any discrepancy, the reason for the rejection and the action required. Please ensure that your contact details are up to date and correct. These can be updated by contacting BPO-CBL.email@example.com.
Where a credit note is issued, please check that the cause of the error is resolved to avoid further discrepancies, as they create additional work for both parties and create risk of a delay to payment.
Please contact the Accounts Payable Team by or phone or e-mail for status updates of individual invoices and by e-mail only for a large number of invoices or a full statement.
Our accounts payable team endeavour to provide a first response within 3 working days of receiving a query.

Please avoid sending duplicate invoices for invoices in query. Please do not send invoices to the accounts payable address as they will not be processed.
If you are unable to reach a resolution to an issue or have any concerns, please escalate this to your Molson Coors relationship owner.
