What is an EDIFACT REMADV Message?

An EDIFACT REMADV (REMittance ADVice) message is used by the customer to inform their supplier at the end of an EDI workflow when and how much money they will transfer for the received goods or services or that the transfer has just taken place.

The REMADV message follows the EDI message standard UN/EDIFACT and is used in conjunction with EDI INVOIC messages.


The use of the EDIFACT REMADV Message

The supplying organization would first create an EDI invoice message or several invoice messages to their customer. When using EDIFACT as the EDI standard, this would be as an INVOIC message.

A REMADV message is particularly useful if multiple invoices are settled in a single payment. With an EDIFACT REMADV, the supplier can use this information to relate several invoices to a payment.

As the usage of a REMADV message is optional, it is not as common as some of the other practically mandatory document types in an EDI workflow. These REMADV messages tend to be sent between the larger customers and their suppliers, dependent on their specific business practices.

Benefits using EDI and the REMADV Message

A REMADV allows customers and suppliers to plan their cash flows and finances more precisely

since their ERP / SAP system already has the information about the settlement of the invoices before this got to their accounts

Reduction in employee workload by automating financial forecasts
Enablement of batch driven payment runs for customer-supplier relations with a large number of deliveries
Fewer errors in the accounting process
Invoicing become paperless, meaning less waste
Direct transmission of details of payments speed up the entire accounting process
