Tip of the Week: Agent Automated Deduction Requests

An Agent Automated Deduction (AAD) is a request for reimbursement from an airline for an error in a transaction reported in a previous sales report within one of the last 12 PEDs. It may be used to correct a mistake on a transaction in the sales report (e.g., overpayment on a transaction, incorrect commission, etc.) An agent may claim up to $25 on an ARC-settled document but is limited to one AAD per document. 

To create an AAD, follow these steps: 

  1. Sign in to your IAR sales report

  2. Click the Add tab

  3. Choose TD-AAD. Type in the 14-character ticket number to the right of the screen

  4. Click Go

The AAD screen will then display the values originally settled for the ticket. From here, you can make the necessary adjustments in the “Should Be” column and change the net remit accordingly. 

ARC will process AADs included in an IAR Sales Report; however, the agent is responsible for researching and verifying the circumstances of the transaction. Please note that entering the AAD in IAR does not imply that the airline agrees with the amount or circumstances surrounding the AAD.
