This will ensure your invoices can be processed and payment will be made directly into your bank account the Friday of the following week.


Before commencing any work you should be in possession of a work docket giving instructions on what is to be done. On completion of the vehicle the docket should be initialed and dated. You should then return the docket to your Team Leader who will inspect your vehicle and then enter the details on to the dealership worksheet. At the end of each week the dealership will sign off the completed worksheet.

Fees will only be paid if the work docket and the worksheet agree. Failure to adopt the above procedure could result in non-payment of fees.
