Our payment terms and practices
Payment terms will be agreed with suppliers prior to contract award. These terms will be included within the official purchase order documentation.We create a unique Purchase Order for all ordered goods or services. Our supplier should be in receipt of a valid Purchase Order number before providing the goods and services. Failure to comply will result in non-payment.
A purchase order is not required where payment has been made using a purchasing card.
It is our policy to pay all suppliers in accordance with agreed terms.
- Accurate and timely invoices
- A valid Purchase Order number
Suppliers should send invoices to the Scottish Accounting Unit at:
65 Haymarket Terrace
We will inform suppliers promptly when invoices are contested. Any complaints from suppliers regarding non-payment will be dealt with in an effective and timely manner.
