Self service for suppliers

The Supplier Portal is used by over 2000 of our suppliers for many of our business transactions. The portal enables suppliers to submit invoices directly into our finance system for automatic processing through to payment. The Supplier Portal has been developed in partnership with East Sussex County Council and is powered by Taulia.

The portal:

  • provides 24/7 visibility of invoices and payment status, comprehensive self-service and the ability to accept early payment offers
  • is free to use and will save time and effort in the invoicing and payment process for both suppliers and the Council.

How this affects our suppliers

Enrolment is easy and only takes a few minutes, and guidance and support is available. Use of the supplier portal is mandatory for all new suppliers from 2017.

If you have not received an invitation to enrol but would be interested in submitting your invoices electronically please contact 0300 200 1011 for more information or take a look at the Supplier Portal website.

Until you have enrolled please continue to submit invoices to the address shown on the purchase orders that you receive from us – and please ensure that you quote the purchase order number on every invoice.

We now have over 50% of our annual invoices being submitted electronically by our vendors and have had some fantastic feedback regarding the ease of use, and the support that we have provided.
