As per 6.1 of ISPG (UATP) , second paragraph, In the SIS environment, invoices will be raised by UATP-ATCAN or the Billing Entity (if it opts out of the UATP service) but neither will create the U-12 file/recap sheet to be submitted to the CH. SIS will generate the required U-12 file for ICH and recap sheet for ACH. UATP-ATCAN will continue to send the ATCAN file as it does currently.
Currently, EK has not opted for UATP-ATCAN to raise invoice on behalf of EK. EK is directly submitting U-12 file to ICH.
Due to reconciliation issue, even under SIS, EK will not use functionality of UATP-ATCAN raising invoice and submitting to SIS. EK likes to continue submitting invoices directly to SIS.
After migration, EK being merchant carrier will continue to receive UATP-ATCAN file from UATP-ATCAN in current format on daily basis. Same way as being done today, a copy of UATP-ATCAN file will be sent by UATP-ATCAN to TP issuing carrier on daily basis.
Question : Under SIS, EK likes to club daily files received from UATP-ATCAN for an ICH period and likes to make master invoice and submit the master invoice to SIS in IS- XML at the end of each billing period. In other words EK will raise one invoice per billed entity,per billing period as against one per day being done today. This will be a master invoice and there will be a master invoice number generated for this invoice. This invoice will be billed under charge category UATP and charge code ATCAN. The line item details will contain all the details of the original invoice( i.e. the original invoice number, original invoice date, total sales per original invoice, daily exchange rate and rate of discount). As this will be raised once a period, there will be a total ( master) invoice amount. Will SIS accepet master invoice from EK. Or EK has to submit daily invoice against daily file received from UATP-ATCAN.
