If we need to pay you


If you’re a business waiting for payment of an invoice, please speak to the service area you provided the goods or service to in the first instance. Remember to have the purchase order number handy before you contact them.


If they can’t resolve your query, contact our payments group on 029 2087 2359.


Invoices are paid by crossed cheques, which can be ‘opened’ by special arrangement. In certain circumstances cheques can be collected from County Hall rather than posted. If you want to request either of these options, and to find out more about what proof of identification is needed, contact us on 029 2087 2359.
