Invoice Submission

CIBC has three methods for suppliers to submit invoices. Following the correct invoice submission process will avoid misdirected invoices and prevent unnecessary delays in processing payment.

1) Electronically:

High-volume suppliers can be set up to submit invoices electronically using industry-standard EDI 810 interface methodologies. To establish an EDI 810 electronic invoice process, please contact the Corporate Service Help Desk: mailbox.corporateservicessupport@cibc.com

2) Paper-based:

Supplier mails an invoice to the appropriate CIBC contact:

  1. Invoice without supporting CIBC Purchase Order — mailed to CIBC contact who requested the goods and/or services or has been designated to receive the invoices for review and appropriate authorization
  2. Invoice referencing CIBC Purchase Order — mailed directly to CIBC Accounts Payable as specified on the purchase order

3) Email:

Supplier emails PDF/Word/Excel invoice to the appropriate CIBC contact.

Payment Options

The following methods are used by CIBC to remit payment to suppliers:

  1. Purchasing Card
  2. Corporate Card
  3. Canadian dollar cheque
  4. U.S. dollar cheque
  5. Electronically via EDI 820 payment with remittance details (for Canadian dollar supplier remittance only with selected Schedule 1 banks)
  6. Electronically via wire payments (for non-CAD/USD payments only)

Purchasing Card

To optimize payment efficiency for suppliers, CIBC recommends that selected purchases be settled using a Purchasing Card.

Purchasing Card settlement is used for low dollar, day-to-day operational purchases totaling less than $1,000 per transaction.
