Meriton Suites Commission Claim Process
Thank you for choosing Meriton Suites as your preferred accommodation provider in Sydney, Brisbane and on the Gold Coast. We value your partnership and we want to ensure that any outstanding commission payments to you are processed as soon as possible. To ensure this happens, please review the following requirements.
Commission invoices need to be emailed to [email protected] in a standard format such as PDF, Word or Excel and within 60-days of the guest/s departure. The commission invoice must contain the following:
- Agency details (including name, telephone email and address).
- Valid IATA or TIDS number.
- Agency ABN (Australian agents only).
- Meriton Suites hotel name.
- Confirmation number.
- Guest details (including first and last name).
- Unique Invoice number.
- Arrival and departure date.
- Total accommodation amount with GST breakdown (Australian agents only).
- Total Commission amount with GST breakdown (Australian agents only).
- Bank account details including account name, number, BSB (Australian agents only).
If you are a subcontractor using a IATA number that isn’t registered to your agency name and ABN you will need to have the owner of the IATA number make the commission claim on your behalf. IATA numbers can only be owned by one entity, and the ABN and banking details must match for successful payment to take place.
