Further extended decision regarding changes in invoice procedures
The Swedish Transport Administration decided in the spring to change payment procedures due to the corona virus. The arrangement will now be extended until 31 October.
This means that suppliers are still offered payment as early as 15 days after the invoice date.
This decision means that our suppliers will continue to be offered payment as early as 15 days after the invoice date. This must be stated on the invoice. We encourage our suppliers to apply the same preferential terms to their subcontractors, so that the entire supply chain can take advantage of the offer. We also accept 90 day payment terms for invoices issued to customers with traffic agreements.
The decision is valid for a transitional period, but no later than 31 October 2020. Otherwise, invoice and payment procedures apply according to the individual contract terms. You as a supplier are not able to invoice for interest on overdue payment if the Swedish Transport Administration pays later than 15 days but within the agreed 30.
Rapid handling of invoices
─ Many of our suppliers continue to have concerns about liquidity in the current situation, says Daniel Ljunglund, Purchasing Director of the Swedish Transport Administration. Through faster handling, the Swedish Transport Administration wishes to contribute to suppliers' own ability to pay. At the same time, we would like to stress the importance of suppliers being extra careful to deliver accurate documentation for invoicing; this will be absolutely crucial for rapid handling.
