Accounts receivable invoices, or sundry invoices as they are sometimes known, are issued in respect of a large range of services.
You may have received an invoice in respect of a service you requested. Examples of these kinds of invoices include:
- commercial leases
- skip hire
- pest control services
- dropped kerb work
- home alarm services
In these situations, we are required to make a charge for these services. This is done by issuing an invoice.
Your invoice should state clearly the service you are being charged for. If however, you are unclear about the service, you will need to contact the issuing department, the details of which are in the top right hand corner of the invoice.
Your invoice will state the amounts payable for each service, and will show the total amount payable at the bottom of the page. Invoices are payable in full upon receipt, details on how to pay are mentioned below.
Any invoice you receive is due for payment in full as soon as you receive it. If you do not pay the invoice we will send you a reminder for the amount outstanding. If you are having difficulty paying, contact the accounts receivable team as soon as possible, otherwise we may have to start our recovery process. This often involves the collection of outstanding invoices through the courts, and this can mean that you have to pay added court costs. We may also refer your invoice to an external collection agency, which again could result in you having to pay additional costs.

Bank or building society
You can use internet or telephone banking by quoting:

Make your cheque payable to Doncaster MBC and include your invoice number on the reverse of the cheque. Payments can take longer using this method, so please make sure they are paid in plenty of time before due date or your instalment date.
Querying your invoice
There may be many reasons why you want to query an invoice you have received and it is important that you let us know as soon as possible so that the query can be resolved.
In cases where your question is about the actual goods/services provided, you will need to contact the department that issued the invoice. The contact name and number on the invoice will put you in touch with the originating department.
All questions about invoices for social care (residential, respite, home and day care) should be directed to the Financial Assessment Team.
However if you contact us, we will need an invoice/customer number in order to help you. Please quote your invoice/customer number in all correspondence, which is located in a box on the right hand side of your invoice. If this is not possible and you do not have access to your invoice number for any reason, we will need your full name and address.
Please note that we may not be able to discuss the invoice with someone other than the person or persons named on it.
