Ways to invoice Account NI
There are two main ways that invoices can be sent to Account NI; by email or post.
The preferred method is by email.
On no account should invoices be sent by both email and post.
Dealing with Account NI electronically is both cheaper and faster.
To maximise the benefits of full electronic invoice processing ANI have introduced an e-Invoicing solution. There is some set up required to on-board suppliers to this solution, enquiries and requests for on-boarding should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The solution is very straight forward and simply requires that all invoices are sent via email, in structured PDF format and that all invoices must quote a valid Account NI Purchase Order number (Note: valid Account NI order numbers are 10 digits in length and begin 6xxxxxxxxx). Invoice received in ANI without a Purchase Order number from an on-boarded supplier will be returned directly to the supplier.
On-boarded suppliers should send invoices to email@example.com. Invoices must be in structured pdf format and contain a valid ANI Purchase Order number.
Invoices can be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org. Invoices must be in either .pdf or .tif format.
On no account should invoices be sent to both email addresses
