The VDA 4906 is also referenced as VDA invoice message and is used to exchange invoices between suppliers and customers.
VDA 4906 was a VDA (German Association of the Automotive Industry or in German “Verband der Automobilindustrie e. V.”) standard and an essential document for electronic invoicing processes in automotive and manufacturing. The new VDA 4938 message has replaced both the legacy VDA 4906 invoice message as well as the VDA 4908 credit note message.
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.
When trading partners communicate via EDI VDA 4906 messages this enables them to automatically exchange invoicing information and to directly align the billings against the representative orders. Thus a VDA 4906 message consists of segments containing billing information for the exchanged materials/services and information about sender and recipient.
A VDA 4906 invoice message is sent by the supplier to its respective customer. The receiving EDI system on customer side validates the message against VDA 4906 specifications and sends back a functional acknowledgement after successful reception. The functional acknowledgement confirms the reception, afterwards the VDA 4906 data is forwarded to the customer’s ERP system.
The VDA 4906 standard has been widely used in automotive industries and has comparable functions like an EDIFACT INVOIC or an ANSI X12 810 format for the same purpose.
The VDA 4906 message is the predecessor of the newer VDA 4938 message for invoices.
When moving to the latest VDA standards like VDA 4938 for invoicing as part of serving JIT processes in a supply chain, you need a very reliable EDI operation. Using SEEBURGER you can get the new format and a very stable operation quickly:
