be The first to get paid with barclays EARLY payment solutions

Message from Katherine Gleeson, CPO, Barclays

Barclays is working toward improving and streamlining our payments processes which includes aligning to the best practice of paying invoices to their net terms/due date from [DATE]. We understand this is a change to the way we’ve been working, therefore as part of our commitment to the success and sustainability of our suppliers, Barclays is launching new programs in collaboration with Coupa to offer options outlined below for invoices to be settled sooner or at net terms.

Barclays remains committed to contributing to the success and sustainability of our suppliers. We continue to do this by focusing on enhancing and streamlining our payment processes. Today we are pleased to share how we are launching three new programs in collaboration with Coupa that will support the reduction in payment timescales. We are offering you the opportunity to opt into one of the programs outlined below should early payment be of benefit to your organization or be paid at net terms.

Each program has the potential to improve your cash conversion cycle. Please read about each one to see which may be the best fit:

  • The Virtual Credit Card program enables you to be paid at time of invoice approval.
  • The Static Discounting program enables you to opt into a pre-approved discount term for early payment consideration at the time of invoice creation in Coupa.
  • The Dynamic Discounting program enables you to review approved invoices and select them for early payment consideration at a discount rate of your choice.

We encourage you and anyone in your organisation who is responsible for accounts receivable to review these programs and learn how they can help get your business get paid faster. We want to establish Barclays as a valued client of choice for our suppliers and look forward to your continued success.

If you have any questions, our team is ready to help you at [email protected].
