The SA Government is modernising its services and will soon cease issuing cheques for invoice payments.

From 31 March 2017, invoice payments will be made only by Electronic Funds Transfer (EFT) and remittance advices will be provided electronically via email.

These changes reflect the digital shift occurring broadly across Australia and will lead to faster and more convenient receipt of payments for vendors and suppliers of the SA Government.

Vendors and suppliers who currently receive cheque payments or hard copy remittance advices will need to register their bank account and email address details with Shared Services SA to continue to receive invoice payments.
