Any other information about payment terms

FSCS have a policy that all invoices should include a valid FSCS purchase order number in order to be paid.

Dispute resolution process

Complaints from suppliers are raised with the FSCS employee who ordered the goods/services, or with the Finance team. Colleagues will seek to understand the issue as soon as practical in order to ascertain if the complaint arises from within the business (eg preventing the invoice being approved) or from within Finance (eg preventing an approved invoice being paid) and the relevant colleague will then respond directly to the supplier.
Although we are not aware of this having been necessary, suppliers can choose to escalate to the Chief Executive or a member of the Board of Directors.
