UK Payment Procedures

Invoices should be sent to the relevant Accounts Payable teams for processing. These invoices will be promptly recorded, matched to stock being booked in or sent out for internal authorisation. Invoices will generally be paid on terms by either BACS/ACH or cheque if a UK supplier or wire transfer if overseas or a foreign currency value. Items in dispute will not be paid neither will invoices missing purchase orders when required.

Please note that all sites require Purchase Order numbers to be quoted for inventory items and for IS equipment purchased via the Basingstoke site. For non inventory items this may vary so please check when accepting an order.

Please do not send invoices direct to Overton as this builds in a processing delay.

Please note that the Delivery Address may well be different to the Invoice Address.

Queries for the above operations should be sent to Accounts Payable at sharedservices.ap@uk.delarue.com or, if known, the point of contact for the order. Please restrict phone queries to the Accounts Payable team to the afternoon.

From early 2014 we will be sending suppliers a summary of invoices processed and their current status on a weekly basis by email using the email address we use for remittance advices. Please ensure that you have notified this to the accounts payable team if it has recently changed or not been previously notified.

For the UK Passport operation (Gateshead, Charles House Manchester and Basingstoke) please invoice De La Rue International Limited trading as De La Rue Identity Systems – UK Passport Accounts Payable team at the above Basingstoke address rather than the Shared Services team. Please note that for Gateshead and Manchester the Delivery Address will be different to the Invoice Address.

Information for All Suppliers

We would encourage you all to look at and join the Governments Prompt Payment Scheme. http://www.promptpaymentcode.org.uk/

This is one way that it is hoped to ease the credit crunch on smaller suppliers and De La Rue has applied for membership of this scheme.

Our Purchasing teams will be asking new suppliers and at renewal of contracts with existing suppliers if you are in the scheme or have applied to join it.
