Information for Suppliers

General information on invoicing/purchase orders/accounts payable

A valid Purchase Order Number must be recorded on invoices submitted for the purchase of goods or services.

An invoice received without a relevant purchase order number will be sent back from Accounts Payable to the Supplier

All invoices must be forwarded to: Accounts Payable, Finance Department, Fingal County Council, County Hall, Main Street, Swords, Fingal, Co. Dublin. Eircode K67 X8Y2

All invoices/payments are processed by the Finance Department.  These include payments for goods and services provided to the Council for various Capital and Revenue purposes

Payment by means of SCT - SEPA CREDIT TRANSFER

Where practicable we endeavour to make payments to suppliers directly into their bank accounts by SEPA credit transfer.  A remittance is emailed to the supplier giving details of the invoices being paid.

In accordance with section 177 of the Finance Act 1995 as amended by the Taxes Consolidation Act 1997, all companies doing business with a Local Authority must have a valid Tax Clearance Certificate in your company name i.e. the name that appears on your invoices.

If total payments reach the €10,000 threshold within a rolling 12 month period, payments cannot be made until a valid Certificate is received from you.

The original Certificate must be submitted to the Accounts Payable office or if you use the Revenue On Line Service, your Registration Number and Notice Number is required.

This can be found on the top left-hand corner of your Certificate and Accounts Payable can confirm the details on line.
