How to set up global vendor master data

Hi, We have global vendors. We set up a vendor master data for vendor in each country in ECC due to different country has different regulations and tax rules, e.g. Siemens Germany, Siemens USA. We negotiate price with their central sales department and get some price conditions in all their subsidiaries. It is not possible to connect multiple vendors in SAP contract. Is there any suggestions on how to create one central contract instead of creating multiple contracts for each vendor? Is it possible to set up a global vendor master data and then assign other related vendors to the global vendor? Then the contract created for the central vendor can apply for its subsidiaries when doing call of order. But we are only using ECC.

Thank you!

How are the individual vendors liked to the global vendor? is this done with partner roles? or by use of different approach?

Hi Jurgen, unfortunately, there is no linkage at all today.

Hi Stefan,

Contract is a legal document which terms and conditions we have negotiated with vendor, we can not assign multiple vendors to a single contract. But you can copy the contract and create a new one for another vendor.
