The VDA 4908 is used to exchange credit note data. Therefore credit note data is sent from a customer to a supplier using the VDA 4908 format.
VDA 4908 is an EDI standard document for electronic credit note processes in automotive and manufacturing defined by the VDA (German Association of the Automotive Industry or in German Verband der Automobilindustrie e. V.). The new VDA 4938 message replaces both the legacy VDA 4906 invoice message as well as the VDA 4908 message for credit notes.
The VDA 4938 format is built on EDIFACT (D.07A Version) and thus is a subset of the EDIFACT INVOIC intended for the automotive processes.
EDI Trading Partners are able to use the VDA 4908 message in order to automatically exchange credit information and to directly align the billings against the representative orders. Therefore the VDA 4908 message consists of segments containing billing and credit information for the exchanged materials/services and information about sender and recipient.
VDA 4908 comes from a customer with the credit note data on his end. Then the message is received and validated by the supplier’s EDI system before it is forwarded to its ERP system. There the credit note data is aligned against the shipments that were referenced in the VDA 4908 message.
The VDA 4908 standard defines a format widely used in automotive industries. In the EU and ASIA in other industries like CPG or retail the EDIFACT INVOIC standard is very common to exchange invoice and credit note data.
The VDA 4908 message is one of the two predecessors of the new VDA 4938 message for invoices.
When moving to the latest VDA standards like VDA 4938 for invoicing and credit note handling while supporting JIT processes in a highly integrated supply chain, you need a very reliable EDI operation. Using SEEBURGER you can get the new format and a very stable operation quickly:
