All invoices should be date stamped upon receipt. Departments should label invoices and clearly indicate the following:
- business unit against which the charge is made
- object code for the item or service, see
- authorised signatory e.g. Head of Department
Invoices should be returned promptly to the Payments office to be included in the weekly payment run.
Prompt payments interest is due on all invoices paid later than 30 days after the date of receipt. This interest is charged to the Departments budget.
