    Important note
    IMPORTANT NOTE!

    • Regarding Access to Bank Details & Payment Profile

    • IMPORTANT NOTE:

    • After registering in SAVB, you must WAIT 24-48 hours before validating your bank information and mapping your payment profile in SAVB to your organization’s locations.  This waiting period will allow Microsoft the time necessary to create required vendor ID(s) in our automated payment system. 

    • If after the waiting period, you are still unable to see or map your payment profile(s) in SAVB to your locations, it may be because Microsoft requires additional essential bank details or tax documentation for your organization.  If this occurs, please immediately contact the Microsoft Accounts Payable alias for your region for help:
