When goods or services have been provided on credit, an Invoice Request is completed to enable a University invoice to be sent to the client Debtor. To raised the Invoice request, a web-based on-line request facility allows the request to be simply completed by accessing details from the University Finance System. On completion the Request is immediately sent to the Accounts Receivable Officer responsible for administering the Debtor system.
Guidelines are available to assist with completing the Request.
An official University invoice will be raised and recorded in the Financial Management System Technology One, thereby allocating income to the project code indicated in the invoice request. Finance will be responsible for follow up of outstanding invoices. Should Finance encounter difficulty in recovering a debt, the area that requested the invoice may be called upon for assistance. Should this be unsuccessful the University will consider legal action or write back the debt. Any write back will result in a correction of the original in come entry back to the originating project code.
Any debt that is to be written back must comply with the Financial Delegations policy.
