An invoice is a bill that must be paid by the University. You are responsible for paying your invoices through the online tool Lupin (Proceedo).
Compulsory e-invoicing in the public sector
All purchases in the public sector are required by law to be invoiced electronically. This requirement is part of efforts to make public administration more efficient throughout the EU.
In Lupin (Proceedo) you will process purchasing and supplier invoices. All invoices are processed electronically. User guides for Proceedo 9 are available below.
The user guides open in a new tab.

For business travel you need to supplement the invoice with the purpose/objective of the trip. The date of the assignment/trip shall be stated in all business travel and programme attachments.
Name of the department/division
SE-221 00 Lund
Reference: First name and surname(s), for example “Lars Larsson”.
If you receive invoices directly to the department you should send these to be scanned. Use the University’s billing address (see above). It is also possible to use an internal envelope addressed to "Invoice Scan, Box 188". Then, contact the supplier and change the address to the University billing address with the addition of the name of the department. Inform your supplier about the new legal requirements for e-invoicing.
If several invoices are sent in the same envelope and one/some invoices consist of several pages – keep any multi-page invoices together using paper clips (do not staple).
Made out to Lund University
Invoices must always be made out to Lund University. If you receive an invoice that is not made out to Lund University, but that is to be paid by the University, you must ask the supplier to send you a new invoice with the correct name.

In case of error
When invoices have errors or if you need to make a complaint about something, you should contact the supplier and request a credit note. Wait to process the invoice until the credit note has been sent to Lupin. Then, process both invoices simultaneously.
Lupin/Proceedo includes a function via which you can delegate your approval rights to a colleague who is on duty. The function is on the left of the Lupin start page (under the blue To handle box). Click on the + symbol and choose who you want to delegate to, as well as which task to delegate and for what period. You and the person you have delegated to will both have access to process orders/invoices during the period you selected.
Delivery acknowledgements and reviewing invoices can be delegated to a colleague of your choosing, but remember to inform them.
If you have approval rights, delegation is to be to a substitute officer according to the existing Approval Plan.
