Financial services


I'm looking for:

Financial services 
Council’s financial services section provides timely and accurate information:

  1. To assist Councillors with decision making
  2. To manage and facilitate sustainable financial control of the organisation and ensure that commitments to deliver services to the community are maintained.

This section is responsible for supplier account management and debtor account management in order to satisfactorily manage the cash flow for Council and ensure that it can meet its financial obligations.

Accounts Payable

Submitting invoices
All invoices must be submitted using one of the following methods:

If tax invoices are delivered with goods, handed to Council officers or submitted in any other way there can be no guarantee that they will reach the Finance Section. This may result in delayed payment of your account.

Payment terms
Yass Valley Council standard terms of payment are up to 30 days from the receipt of a correctly presented tax invoice to the Finance Section. Staff do not have the authority to make or guarantee the date on which a payment will be processed. If you require confirmation of a payment date, please contact accounts payable - 02 6226 1477.

In accordance with the Australian Tax Office, Council requires all suppliers who do not have an ABN (or do not quote their ABN) to complete a Statement by Supplier Declaration Form and attach it with every invoice submitted. This form can be found on the ATO Website
