Message from Hendrik Snyman, Chief Procurement Officer, Beach Energy

Beach Energy is embarking on offering our suppliers an Early Payment Discounting program in order to assist our Suppliers with cashflow if the need arises. We also want to establish Beach as a client of choice towards our Suppliers.

This program will shorten the payment cycle and offers flexible discount settings, as you can nominate to offer a discount on your invoices to be paid early and you will be able to manage this through the normal Coupa Supplier Portal (CSP). I would encourage the person responsible for accounts receivable to review this program. More information about our Early Pay Discounting program is available below. In addition, more information about Coupa Supplier Portal and a video on how Early Pay Discounting works is available in this link.

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

Thank you in advance for your cooperation.

How to get started

Step 1 – Select Eligible Invoices

Action → Log in to the Coupa Supplier Portal and select a customer from the dropdown list.

Action → Click on “Payments” → “Early Payments” to see a list of invoices you can select to offer a discount on.

An invoice is eligible for Dynamic Discount when:

  • It is approved by the buyer
  • Matches a Dynamic Discount setting configured on supplier record in Coupa Instance

    Step 2 – Choose Your Discount Rate

    Action → Select one or more invoices from the list.

    Action → Click on the “Get Paid” button on the top left to create an Early Pay Request and define your preferred discount rate (%).

    This discount rate is applied to all invoices in the Early Pay Request. The discount amounts will be automatically displayed for your review.

    Action → If the offer looks good, click “Submit”.

    Step 3 – Manage Payment Requests

    After submission, you will receive a message indicating whether it requires the buyer’s approval or has been automatically accepted.

    • Automatically accepted Early Pay Requests will show the expected payment date

    You can view the status of previous Early Pay Requests in the “Status” column.

    Note: Please ensure you attach an updated Tax Invoice, or Adjustment Note (if applicable), in the Coupa Supplier Portal showing the revised amount payable and any applicable GST. This must be provided before any payment can be made. Under Comments section of your invoice, you can attach the updated Tax invoice.

    Manage Settings and Auto Submit Early Payment Requests

    You can manage Dynamic Discount settings through the “Admin” tab of the Coupa Supplier Portal. Choose to turn off Dynamic Discounts or automatically start submitting eligible invoices as early payment requests any time.

    Action → Set up automatic submission of Early Pay Requests by clicking “Yes” in the “Auto Submit” screen.

    You can always turn this on later under “Admin” → “Payment Preferences” → “Dynamic Discounting”.
