Invoicing

All invoices submitted to Council should:

  • state the purchase order number, contract reference (if applicable) and contact person - these items are the key to all processes associated with paying accounts on time and must be quoted to ensure prompt payment
  • only relate to the delivery of the goods or services listed on a purchase order - Council will only accept multiple tax invoices which relate to one purchase order where the supply of goods and/or services occurs over a period of time.

Whilst invoices can be submitted using one of the following methods:

Payment

Council's standard payment terms are within 30 days of a properly rendered invoice.

Council's preferred method of payment is by electronic funds transfer. To enable this, you will be sent a Creditor Application Form to complete. This information is for your protection and to ensure the payment of funds is direct to your nominated bank account.

Council endeavours to maintain and update supplier details on a regular basis. If any of your details change, please email the details on your company letterhead with any supporting documentation to vendors@redland.qld.gov.au
