When matching an invoice to a purchase order, colleagues should aim to raise the PO before the supplier invoice is raised so it can be quoted on the invoice and processed quickly for payment.

For invoices that require matching after they has been submitted and received, please complete the PO Match E-form - guidance on completing the form can be found here.

Invoice Coding Workflow Notification
If you receive an invoice coding workflow notification, it is advised to code the invoice rather than raising a retrospective PO as this will ensure quicker processing of the invoice. If you are unsure how to code an invoice please refer to the Workflow Notifications guidance.
