Invoicing and payment

Australian suppliers
BAE Systems’ policy is to pay Australian Small to Medium Enterprises within 30 days of a compliant invoice being received, provided that the goods / services have been delivered.
To be eligible for these payment terms suppliers must have an Australian ABN, no more than A$10 million revenue in the last year and must not be owned by an offshore parent company.
In addition to the standard Australian Taxation Office Tax Invoice requirements, a compliant invoice must include the following:
  • Purchase Order number (only one Purchase Order per invoice)
  • Purchase Order line number
  • Unit price and quantity and total value that match the Purchase Order
  • Delivery address
If you are not sure of the Purchase Order number for your transaction ask your BAE Systems contact to provide you with one.
Invoices that do not meet the requirements above will be returned to the supplier for correction.
Your invoice should be emailed directly to Accounts Payable in PDF format:
