E-invoices are not the only way in which to receive invoices from the City electronically.

Direct payment is a good option if you do not have online banking credentials. To make a direct payment agreement, please contact your bank. Once the agreement has been made, the bank will automatically pay the invoices from your account on the due date. In addition to this, we will deliver the invoice information by post well in advance of the due date. Please note that making a direct payment agreement requires a visit to the bank.
