The Premier Supplier Scheme (PSS) is an early payment programme that allows earlier payment to suppliers than the contracted terms. It also allows us to improve our payment processes.

PSS 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 you pay the invoice. However, 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

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 PSS, you'll benefit from:

  • improved cash flow
  • greater visibility across the council
  • reduced time spent chasing payments
