Benefits for you

Targeted same day invoice processing

Linked to early payment, as a member of the Programme this is something you will be entitled to benefit from.

Nominated contacts within the council

As a member of the Premier Supplier Programme, you will have nominated contacts within the council who are dedicated to providing you with an end to end specialised service to ensure early payment is achieved. 

Future developments

This is the first step in a longer term process to improve business relationships. Further beneficial features will be added in response to feedback from participating suppliers. 

Future e-commerce developments

One of the most significant developments is that we're committed to e-invoicing, which will bring the following benefits to suppliers: 
  • The elimination of paper invoices and the associated manual processes. 
  • A reduction in data entry errors.
  • The ability for invoices to be immediately released for payment, where appropriate. 
  • Improvement in the number of days that payment can be accelerated
