Code 73s are Accounts Receivable claims filed when Walmart has made multiple payments for the same goods/POs. Walmart is requesting payment from the vendor to reverse the additional payments they made.

How to Prevent Valid Code 73s

Since a valid code 73 is the result of a mistake by Walmart, there is not much that a supplier can do to prevent it. 

Can it be Disputed?

Yes, if Walmart is claiming to have made a duplicate payment but you have proof that the payments they are referencing match up with real invoices, then you can dispute it in Deductions Navigator.

Supporting Documentation Needed to Dispute Invalid Code 73s:

  • Invoices for the check being referenced in the claim

  • Purchase Orders for the check being referenced in the claim
