When are invoices paid? 

The Town issues checks weekly, with payments mailed by Friday. To determine the status of an invoice, it’s recommended that vendors email Accounts Payable. Generally, invoices must be approved by the individual department before being processed for payment. If applicable, the purchase order number must be shown on the face of the invoice. For faster processing, the Town encourages vendors to sign up for Direct Payment.

Vendor Database & E-Verify

Maintaining an accurate vendor database is an essential and important function of Accounts Payable to ensure proper payments. Potential vendors doing business with the Town of Clayton must complete a new vendor application: New Vendor Application.  The E-Verify Employer Compliance Statement which is part of this application must be filled out only if the contract is subject to G.S. 143-129 (construction or repair contracts of $500,000 or more and purchasing contracts of $90,000 or more).
