Welcome to the Premier Supplier Programme
It's been developed to build efficient relationships with our suppliers. By signing up you can receive an early payment of your invoices, typically within 7 days, in return for a small rebate.
There's no joining fee and no service charges, all you'll pay is the agreed early payment rebate.
More than 230 suppliers are already enjoying the full benefits of the Programme and you could join them by signing up today.
Features and benefits
We have analysed our purchase-to-pay process in order to better understand and optimise our supplier base. The benefits to your company of signing up to the Premier Supplier Programme include:
- improved cash flow through early payment
- increased process efficiency via e-invoicing, dedicated processing and query resolution
- closer collaboration and a long-term relationship
- increased client satisfaction
How it works
We can pay your invoices ahead of your pre-existing terms, for a small agreed rebate. When you sign up you will need to email your invoices to us to speed up payment.
It's already been a big success with our suppliers.

Getting the best value for the council whilst also enabling suppliers to take advantages of early payment is a very positive development.
The Premier Supplier Programme helps the council in meeting one of its key priorities of growing the economy by helping our suppliers with their cash flow.
Since we signed for the Premium Service our payments are received within a couple of days of invoicing.
