Priority Account Service
Last updated 23 October 2020
The Priority Account Service (PAS) is an early payment programme that gives suppliers the opportunity to be paid earlier than contracted terms. It also allows the council to improve its payment processes.
PAS gives you the option to be paid as soon as the invoice is authorised, ahead of your 30-day terms. You'll need to pay a small, pre-agreed rebate which is applied as the invoice is paid. The rebate is proportionate to the number of days we accelerate the payment by.
We aim to pay you on day 10. The rebate is only applied if the invoice is paid earlier than 30 days.
The benefits of PAS
We believe that strong supplier relationships are essential in achieving our strategic goals. We recognise early payment can make a significant impact on the growth and development of your business.
With PAS, you’ll benefit from:
- improved cash flow
- greater visibility across the council
- reduced time spent chasing payments
