FMC Payment Terms for Suppliers
To be competitive in our industry, FMC’s standard payment terms are 90 days or longer, unless contracted otherwise or government restrictions apply. Suppliers providing goods and services to FMC locations in Brazil, Denmark, Hong Kong, and North America will have the option to enroll in the Citibank Supplier Finance Program, which will enable them to be paid in less than 15 days at a negotiated discount rate to be agreed directly with Citibank. We are also continuing to enable Supplier Finance in more countries.
If you have any questions or concerns, please reach out to your Procurement representative or the FMC Payment Terms Office at FMC.PaymentTerms.Office@fmc.com. Be prepared to reference your supplier name, supplier number, location, and other relevant payment or supplier information. The answers to commonly asked questions are included in the Frequently Asked Questions (“FAQs”) section noted below.
