When vendors appear double in Spend, or when you prefer to see multiple vendors as one, you can merge them. A main supplier can have several sub-vendors . The invoice lines of the sub-vendors will be merged with the designated main vendor, and the sub-vendorwill no longer appear in Spend.
When you disconnect a sub-supplier from its main supplier, the data from the sub-supplier will be disconnected from the main supplier. The sub-supplier is then again visible as an independent supplier in Spend.
There is one drawback when merging the suppliers: when undoing the merging, we always need the spend data again for the year in which you merged the supplier. This is no problem if you always send us the full spend data (of at least the years where the merger took place) with a new delivery. You must also ensure that the years that have been changed by the merger are 'open' in the spend settings. This is not the case with corporate suppliers because the suppliers are not officially merged. An alternative is Corporate vendors.
