Purchase to Pay

Page updated on: 16/08/2023

Carmarthenshire County Council’s purchase to pay process starts with a valid official purchase order (PO) number which ensures that the order is official and authorised.

When you send us your invoice, please quote the number, as this will ensure that your invoice can be immediately matched to the PO and paid without delay.

All payments are made by BACS. You will need to provide proof of your bank details in order to be set up on our payment system.

The Council’s standard payment terms are 30 days from receipt of a valid invoice. However, invoices submitted without a PO number may experience a delay in payment.

The Council reserves the right to pay only those invoices quoting a valid purchase order number
