Payment Terms

Payment Terms

It is the policy of the University of Lincoln to abide by terms of payment agreed with suppliers. In most cases the University’s conditions of purchase apply, in which case payment is made within 30 days of the date of a valid invoice or after acceptance of the goods or services, whichever is the later. However, where clauses are agreed which vary the terms of payment, these will be honoured. The University reserves the right to withhold payment where the goods or services have not been provided in accordance with the contract. We expect our suppliers to pay any sums due to sub-contractors promptly.

Our preferred method of payment is by BACS. Almost 100% of invoices are now paid via BACS and we expect new suppliers to be paid by BACS.


Invoices should be sent to the address below. To avoid delay in payment it is important that the invoice is legally compliant and that it includes a valid purchase order number. Non-compliant invoices will be sent back to the supplier which may lead to a delay in payment.
