The main way we pay suppliers is through Bank Automated Clearing System (BACS). We email remittance advice at the same time - so make sure you give us the correct email address.
Payments are processed every week and funds will be available in your bank account in three banking days. If we pay you by cheque, we'll attach the information to the cheque.
All sums become due for payment on the 30th day following the date of the invoice. We will honour clauses that have been agreed which vary the terms of payment. Our standard conditions of purchase (pdf) also include provision for late payment in accordance with the November 1998 Act of Parliament.
We reserve the right to withhold payment where goods or services have not been provided in accordance with the contract.
We expect our suppliers to pay any sums due to sub-contractors promptly and within a period not exceeding that set out above.
Make sure your invoice matches the purchase order received from Places for People.
Non-compliant invoices will be sent back. This may delay payment. Make sure you include:
We use an intelligent and streamlined Invoice Management System (IMS) which provides improved visibility and control of your invoices.
We are now able to accept scanned PDF invoices by e-mail. We have set up a dedicated e-mail address to receive our invoices: firstname.lastname@example.org
It's important that your invoice is of good quality and easy to read. The invoice should be on white A4 paper, clearly printed in black and without highlighter marks. Handwritten invoices are not acceptable.
