What changes are we making?

Due to an internal reorganisation of the Springer Nature group of companies, the corporate identity of Macmillan Education will change from Springer Nature Limited to Macmillan Education Limited.

What are the implications for me as a customer or supplier?

If you are a customer or supplier to Macmillan Education you may need to update your systems with the new name and bank account.

The new identity will be used for invoicing, payment and any new agreement entered into as of 1 January 2020. Springer Nature Limited will transfer each contract entered into between Macmillan Education and you prior to 1 January 2020 to Macmillan Education Limited with effect from 1 January 2020. Each contract will continue on its existing terms and remain unchanged in all other respects. We do not require you to take any action regarding your contract.

Who should I contact if I require a certificate or other document which will provide proof of the legal entity?

Standard documents are available and can be requested from your regular Macmillan Education contact. The standard documents include excerpts of the company registration and accompanying statements by officers of the company, verifying the name.

Who can I contact to fill out a vendor form?

Please contact your regular Macmillan Education contact.

Do I need a new contract with Macmillan Education Ltd name on it?

No. The terms of any existing contract or agreement you hold with us are unaffected. If you enter into a new agreement with us as of January 1, 2020, Macmillan Education Ltd will be used.

How do I invoice Macmillan Education?

Until 1 January 2020 please continue to send us invoices for payments payable to you addressed to Springer Nature Limited, which will continue to make payment. From 1 January 2020 please address invoices to Macmillan Education Limited and submit them using the following email:  APinvoices1260@springernature.com

We appreciate there will be things you need to change in your systems so we will accept invoices addressed to Springer Nature Limited up to the end of January 2020.

Does this have an impact on the payment of invoices still showing Springer Nature Limited?

If Springer Nature Limited is found on an invoice generated by us prior to January 1, 2020, payment is unaffected, even if submitted on or after January 1, 2020. The Bank details (account and sort code information) on the invoice should be used and the payment will be unaffected.

Invoices you receive from us as of January 1st 2020 will show Macmillan Education Limited and its new Bank details. Please update your records accordingly to reflect this new name and Bank details.

Who will pay my author royalties?

From January 1, 2020 your royalty statement and payment will come from Macmillan Education Limited.

Are imprint brands changing?  

This change affects corporate identity of Macmillan Education only, not our brands or imprints.

Who will control my personal data?

Springer Nature Limited will transfer personal information relating to you to Macmillan Education Limited who will become a controller of your personal information.  For further details please see our privacy policy located at https://www.macmillanenglish.com/us/privacy-policy.
