A request to our suppliers to ensure Christmas invoices are paid on time

Published on Wednesday, 1st December 2021

We wish to request that our suppliers please email their due invoices to invoices@nuneatonandbedworth.gov.uk by 17:00 on the 17th December 2021.

In yet another unprecedented year, COVID-19 has had a significant impact on Nuneaton and Bedworth Borough Council suppliers of all sizes. We have continued to treat the payment of our suppliers as a critical process and we would once again like to provide as much support as we can to ensure that all payments due to be paid over the Christmas period are paid on, or before, the due date. 

Our final payment run of 2021 will be processed on the 22nd December 2021 and will include all invoices approved for payment that are due to be paid up to and including 5th January 2022.

We therefore wish to request that our suppliers please email their due invoices to invoices@nuneatonandbedworth.gov.uk by 17:00 on the 17th December 2021.  Invoices received after this time may not be paid until January 2022.

In addition, there will be a change to our payment run days

In our continued efforts to support all businesses cashflows, particularly small to medium enterprises, who we aim to pay within 10 days, we will be changing our payment run days from January 2022 to a Tuesday and Thursday (currently a Monday and Wednesday).  This will create more time for the Accounts Payable Team to process invoices before a payment run is produced, and will also ensure that we can continue to produce 2 payment runs on weeks where there is a bank holiday.
