Account Payment

17 April 2014

We have been noticing that where we deal with companies on a single account basis, if one department delays payment to this company for any reason, by not getting the required authorisation quickly and sending to Financial Services, other departments find themselves unable to purchase from them until the account has been paid.

We would like to urge all staff to obtain the necessary authorisation for payment (if purchasing cards cannot be used) and send to Financial Services for payment as quickly as possible.

If there is a dispute between yourselves and the company which leads to held up payment, please contact the Procurement and ensure that you contact the company concerned to avoid any further problems occurring.
