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 you send several invoices in the same envelope, it is important that you secure each invoice that runs over several pages together with a paper clip. Do not use staples.
Requisitions sent to Lund University from external project participants are to be addressed and sent to the relevant department’s postal address.
Made out to Lund University
Invoices to be paid by the University must always be made out to Lund University. If not, you must ask the supplier to send a new invoice with the correct name.
Corporate identification number
Lund University’s corporate identification number is 202100-3211.
Lund University’s VAT number is SE202100321101.
Our VAT number shall be used when ordering goods and services from other EU countries.
Lund University’s Eori number is SE 2021003211.
The Eori number is used for customs declarations and other customs related activities.
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 has been provided alongside the order, this must be written 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 an agreement is reached with the supplier and a potential credit note has been sent to Lupin. Then, process both invoices simultaneously. It is important that the credit note contains the same information as the original invoice in terms of supplier and payment information.
Purchasing and invoice management – delegate to a colleague
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.
