Receivables due from suppliers comprise both invoiced and deferred income for subsequent supplier compensation (for example, bonuses, advertising subsidies) and creditors with debit balances. The deviation from the previous year primarily stems from the improvement of agreed terms and conditions of subsequent supplier compensation.

Other tax receivables include entitlements to sales tax refunds totalling €263 million (30/9/2013: €147 million), not yet clearable input tax in the amount of €187 million (30/9/2013: €206 million) and other entitlements to tax refunds totalling €14 million (30/9/2013: €16 million).
