In order to process payments more efficiently, we ask you to conform to the billing instructions provided below.
All invoices must be in the same currency as stipulated in the Purchase Order Form #347. A Purchase Order or Contract will be drafted in the same denomination as your quote. For example, if you quoted a price in Lebanese Pounds, the Purchase Order or Contract will be issued in Lebanese Pounds and the payments will be made in Lebanese Pounds exclusively.
In order for an invoice to be accepted as proper for payment, it must contain the following information:
- It must have a date
- It must have the full name and address of the vendor
- It must have a contact name and telephone number
- If your company charges VAT taxes, you must show the VAT number and charge on the invoice
