Accounts Payable

The Accounts Payable section processes invoices and issues payments to suppliers for goods and services purchased by the City. Accounts Payable works with Procurement Services to ensure contracts and purchase orders are in place to coordinate procurement and payment processing.

Overdue Payments

If payments are overdue, suppliers should contact the employee that requested the goods or services to ensure the invoice was sent to Accounts Payable for payment. Following that, suppliers should contact Accounts Payable at 604-592-7010 with the outstanding invoice number.

Electronic Invoice Submission & Payments

In an effort to support sustainability, reduce risk and improve customer service, the City of Surrey accepts electronic invoice submissions and offers Electronic Funds Transfer payments.

Electronic Invoices

The electronic invoice option will assist with faster payment of invoices and help reduce costs and our carbon footprint. Invoices sent by traditional mail will also be accepted.

Electronic Fund Transfer (EFT)

The EFT option will allow suppliers to receive their payments directly into their bank accounts, reducing the risk of fraud and improving the timeliness of their payment receipt.

If you are a supplier and would like to receive your payments electronically, please contact us at 604-592-7010 to request enrollment for EFT.
