Swords Labs UC & Lawrence Labs Invoice Policy Checklist
Invoices should always be in an original format and sent to the invoicing address on the order confirmation.
All presented invoices must conform to your local country VAT requirements i.e. Tax point date, name of supplier, VAT registration, VAT rate etc.
Important Information :
- DO NOT send acknowledgements, confirmations, or correspondence, to the billing address, as they will be discarded.
- Invoices must contain a valid purchase order number. Invoices will be returned, if the purchase order number is not indicated.
- Invoices must be legible. Please do not send invoices on coloured paper and DO NOT SHADE OR HIGHLIGHT invoice information, as this may prove difficult to read by our scanning system.
- If additional items are added to an invoice, the purchase order must reflect these additions.
- Please note any differences between the purchase order unit of measure and the invoice unit of measure, and explain or provide the conversion factor for each related invoice.
- Our standard payment terms are net 90. Payment is based on purchase order terms. If there is a question regarding payment terms, please contact our Purchasing agent at the relevant site.
- Please include your company's phone and email on invoices.
- Please provide a unique invoice number for each separate invoice.
- DO NOT send invoices if you have already sent us the invoices via EDI or the Web EDI processes. If you are unable to stop the output of invoices already sent to us via EDI or Web-EDI, please change the address to your company's address so that the invoices are not sent to us.
- Please provide complete "ship to" address on each invoice.
