VENDOR INFORMATION

The Sony Pictures Entertainment (SPE) Accounts Payable department requires vendors to submit current and accurate vendor information. This information is critical for successful payment processing.

New vendors need to complete the applicable New Vendor Packet that includes a W9 form for domestic vendors and a W8 form for international vendors. These forms are required to set vendors up for payment.

  • Some notes on our Vendor Management processes:
  • In order to ensure compliance with the Sarbanes-Oxley Act, SPE requires that all vendors provide the business entity's legal name and address. Please keep in mind that P.O. boxes are not acceptable.
  • Your Tax Identification number or Social Security Number for sole proprietors is your unique identifier in our Financial System. It also helps distinguish vendors with similar names.
  • Any change to your vendor name, address, Tax Identification Number, filing status, or bank information should be immediately reported to the Accounts Payable department. For any changes, please send an updated W9, W8 or electronic payment enrollment form to: Sony_Accounts_Payable@spe.sony.com
