All the partners have prompt payment targets and are committed to paying all undisputed invoices within 30 days, or 10 days where appropriate.

The Welsh Purchase Card

An alternative form of payment is by Purchase Card with this being included in some tenders as the preferred method of payment or in some cases as a mandatory requirement. Many suppliers also like to be paid in this way irrespective of the contract requirement as it provides the quickest payment method and improves cash flow.

The Welsh Purchase Card is a charge card that is used by most public sector bodies in Wales as their preferred payment method for many low value goods/services.

To join the Purchase Card Programme your business will need to be able to accept Purchase Card transactions and be "VAT Capable" at either Line Item Detail or Summary Vat level. Please contact for further support and information.
