Code 151: Purchase Rebate Allowance
What is Deduction Code 151?
Code 151s are often not a rebate allowance, but a Sales Rebate with a specific dollar amount given for each unit sold. Usually, it comes through in the Co-Op without a claim code listed.
How to Prevent Valid Code 151s
With your buyer, discuss and agree on a formula to use to calculate a promotional rebate, including what sales types it applies to. Specify that the offer is considered final upon a deduction of the agreed-upon rebate amount by Walmart.
Can Code 151s be Disputed?
Code 151s are not usually disputable since a sales representative from your company would accept this deal in the Retail Link Co-Op Agreement.
How to Dispute Invalid Code 151s
Submit documentation to the Accounts Payable Disputes Portal (APDP) in Retail Link, if the deduction amount does not match the agreed-upon rebate.
