Faster Payment Terms: where to register

Businesses that supply to the NSW Government can register through the buy.nsw Supplier Hub portal to receive Faster Payments Terms.

Under the policy, businesses will be paid within five business days of central payment departments receiving a correctly rendered invoice for goods or services up the value of $1 million. Payments up to $10,000 can also be paid instantly. 

Each month a list of registered businesses is shared with agencies participating in the Faster Payment Terms Policy. Agencies are given two weeks from the 20th day of each month to update their vendor master systems so that any future invoice from a registered business is identified for faster payment. There may be a delay of two to six weeks.

Registering your business for Faster Payments Terms is completed through your supplier profile on the buy.nsw Supplier Hub portal.

The buy.nsw Supplier Hub is where small businesses can register as a supplier to sell to the NSW Government, view opportunities, update business information, and register for Faster Payment Terms.
