    * In cases of supplies for a patented resource, a copy of the payment receipt should be submitted with a written request for distribution.
    * In cases of payment with a credit card, a credit card sales statement will be automatically sent by e-mail.
  • Basically, an electronic tax invoice is issued as a document certifying the payment. In the case of a credit card payment, an electronic tax invoice is not issued. Please contact us (isales@kribb.re.kr) if you have questions about the issuing of an electronic tax invoice or if you need one. If you need an electronic tax invoice, please send us a copy of the business registration certificate via mail or by fax. Neither a price list nor an estimate sheet will be attached.
