Paying invoices

We aim to work closely with our suppliers to make sure you receive payment within 28 days. The 28 day period starts on the day we receive a valid invoice.

If you are supplying us with goods or services, you must get a valid 10 digit purchase order number (starting with 35) from us before providing any good or services. Or if your invoice is for our employee travelling to and from an event, you'll need a T1 reference number (starting with a T1 followed by three to four digits).

To receive payment on time, your invoice must contain:

  • your name, trading name and full address
  • your VAT registration number (if applicable)
  • a unique invoice number
  • invoice date
  • our billing address, as stated below
  • time of supply (referred to as Tax point) if this is different from the invoice date
  • purchase order number (starting with 35) or T1 Reference number (starting with T1)
  • a detailed description of the goods or services you're supplying.

For individual items, we also require a breakdown of:

  • unit price or rate (excluding VAT)
  • quantity of the goods
  • rate of VAT being applied
  • total amount payable (excluding VAT)
  • discount applied to the account
  • freight charges
  • total amount of VAT charged
  • payment terms.

Invalid invoices

If your invoice doesn't include the details, above, it will be invalid and returned.
