Invoice payments

Salford City Council is responsible for the payment of invoices for all goods and services supplied to the council, including providing an invoice payment business process for Salix Homes Limited and Salford Community Leisure Limited. Each year around 150,000 payments are made to suppliers.

All supplier details and invoices are created and maintained by the financial services group based at the address below. All information maintained by the section is governed strictly by the Data Protection Act 1988.

Construction Industry Scheme (CIS)

The CIS Scheme covers all construction work carried out in the United Kingdom. Salford City Council acts as the 'contractor' and under the scheme, all payments made from contractors to sub-contractors must take account of the sub-contractors tax status as determined by HM Revenue & Customs. This may require the contractor to make a deduction, which is then paid to HM Revenue & Customs, from that part of the payment that does not represent the cost of materials incurred by the sub-contractor.

If you have any queries regarding the scheme please contact the Invoice Payments team or for any further information please see the HM Revenue & Customs website.
