Uniqueness of Invoice Numbers

Dear all,
 
in the Beijing presentations it is stated that: " Invoice Number check to be unique within a Calendar year across Billing Categories (Pax, Cargo, UATP, Misc) for a Billing Entity"

It is very new to me that invoice numbers must be unique across Billing Categories - this has never been said before (nothing alike in the ISPG nor in any meeting before.)

Hence my question: is this really true???

 

Thanks and best regards

Dear Elias,
 
Yes - this is correct. Invoice Numbers must be unique within a calendar year across all billing categories.
 
Best regards

Dear Ashley
 
I have a further question on this:
 
Let's say we migrate P & M to SIS by SEP11 and C & U by APR12.
 
During the period SEP11 - APR12, can we send a C invoice and a U invoice with the same number?
 
Thanks and best regards,
 
Elias

Hi Elias,

Yes - it is only in SIS that there will be a validation for the uniqueness of invoice numbers. So prior to the migration Cargo and UATP in Apr 2012, it is possible to send these types of billings with the same invoice number.

Best regards
