Invoice and Payment Processing Procedures
Southern Property Management processes invoices and payments every business day in an effort to process payments as quickly as possible. Southern Property Management utilizes a proprietary automated work flow system to process invoices for payment and has processes and controls in place to safeguard the association's assets and maintain an appropriate audit trail. These processes entail each and every vendor invoice going through multiple steps and approvals prior to disbursement. This length of the process can vary for each invoice depending upon numerous factors including ensuring that the vendor provided all necessary and correct information and their product / service was satisfactory. It will generally take up to 15 days for a vendor to receive payment after receipt of an invoice, including mail time, unless there are issues with the product, service, vendor, or cash position of the association. Please note that in most cases invoices received by the close of business on Monday will be processed on Friday of the same week. All payments will be mailed to the vendor address we currently have on file. If we receive communication from the vendor requesting to pick up payment in person, we will do our best to accommodate this request. However, payments will not be available for in-person pick up any earlier than Friday afternoon at 3 p.m. and the applicable invoice must have been received on the preceding Monday. Please note there are NO EXCEPTIONS to this policy.
Southern Property Management recommends that our association clients not contract services from Vendors who impose unreasonable or restrictive payment terms. Requiring payment in fewer than 30 days is not standard in any industry and is considered unreasonable.
"Unreasonable Fees" are fees or charges assessed by Vendors because such vendor required payment under more restrictive terms than outlined here (e.g. a late fee charged because the vendor required payment in 20 days). In an effort to protect the interests of our clients, it is standard operating procedure for the Southern Property Management AP department to initially refuse payment of any amounts they deem to be Unreasonable Fees.
