I can't make a payment because the payee doesn't have any bank details
New payees are highlighted to you in the Payment screen by appearing with the label 'new' above their name.
In the screenshot below, a 'new payee' has been added to the system, but without a sort code or account number.
If the payee is a company
If the Payee is a company (Supplier), you should find their account details on their invoice:
- Click on the Purchase in question (on the left-hand side of the screen).
- This will open the invoice purchase screen. Scroll to the bottom of the screen.
- Click 'View Invoice' button to see the uploaded copy of the original invoice.
If the payee is a person
If the payee is an individual and you are unsure of their bank details, you should either contact the payee directly or contact the person who entered the purchase (purchase submitter).
Top Tip: typically the person who entered the purchase and who added the new supplier/payee would enter the bank details, so it may be worth going back to the submitter to request that they do this for future purchases where the payee/supplier is new.
