Dispute resolution process

Any payment queries should be directed to the accounts payable team at our Global Business Services office in Belgrade, Serbia using the email The team will investigate reasons for non payment of invoices and if it cannot resolve the query it will reach out to the relevant business department e.g. sourcing / operations, for resolution. Once resolved the invoice will either be passed for payment in accordance with payment terms (or the next payment run which ever is later), or a credit note received. In addition to resolving any current disputes all efforts are made to ensure payment terms are agreed for future invoices.
