Business Suppliers - How we Pay your Invoice

For us to pay your invoice promptly and make sure you do not experience any problems, please follow the instructions below for submitting invoices to us:

  • Purchase order numbers must be obtained for all goods/services supplied to us (prior to the delivery of the goods or commencement of works).

  • All invoices must quote the purchase order number. Unfortunately, if goods/services are supplied without a Purchase Order, a delay in payment could occur.

  • All invoices must be sent directly to the Payments Section, preferably by email to or in hard copy to Eastbourne Borough Council, 1 Grove Road, Eastbourne, East Sussex, BN21 4TW. The use of any other council address may cause delay in payment being made.

  • Invoices should not be raised until the goods/services are complete. The delivery of goods/services is to be made in accordance to the instructions given on the purchase order.

This authority is under a duty to protect the public funds it administers, and to this end may use the information you have provided on this form for the prevention and detection of fraud. We may also share this information with other bodies responsible for auditing or administering public funds.
