Invoice management

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

Since 1 April 2019, 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.

Billing address

Lund University
Name of the department/division
Box 188
221 00 Lund

Reference: First name and surname(s), for example “Greta Garbo”.

If you receive invoices directly to the department you should send these to be scanned. Use the University’s billing address (see above). Then, contact the supplier and change the address to the University billing address with the addition of the name of the department.

If several invoices are sent in the same envelope and one/some invoices consist of several pages – keep any multi-page invoice 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.

Corporate identification number

Lund University’s corporate identification number is 202100-3211.

VAT number

Lund University’s VAT number is SE202100321101.

Our VAT number shall be used when ordering goods and services from other EU countries. 


The first name and surname of the person who placed the order shall be included as reference on the invoice, for example, “Lars Larsson”. If an order number (LU followed by 8 digits) or a subscription number was issued at the time of ordering, this shall also be stated on the first page of the invoice.

Supported currencies for payments

The currencies that may be used for payments are: AUD, CAD, CHF, DKK, EUR, GBP, JPY, NOK, SEK and USD.

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.


Training in ordering, purchasing and Lupin is available through Kompetensportalen

Instruction videos for Lupin are currently being revised and will be published when completed.

Training will be available in English when needed.
