Premier Supplier Partnership

As part of the implementation of the Premier Supplier Partnership and in order to improve our reporting on Accounts payable (AP) invoice payments, from 2 December 2020 the payment date for these invoices will be calculated from the invoice received date and not the invoice date in accordance with the payment terms.  Therefore a valid invoice received date must be entered.  This can be done when you 'Create Invoice' by clicking 'Show More' and adding 'Invoice Received' field.  If you do not enter a valid invoice received date, this field will default to the date of invoice entry, which may delay payment. For more information on the Premier Supplier Partnership, please see the link below:

In order to continue prompt and efficient payment of goods and services during the current COVID-19 outbreak, please refer to the document below detailing special arrangements that have been put in place with immediate effect

Supplier payments - Special arrangements during COVID-19 outbreak (Updated 3 March 2021)


With the temporary payments arrangements put into place at this time, there is a greater risk of duplicating payments to suppliers. Please refer to the guide below to minimise this risk
