What is a Purchase Order?
A Purchase Order confirms an order of goods or services by a purchasing business (ie the client) from a provider (ie the supplier). Purchase Orders are used by many businesses as part of their standard purchasing processes to clarify the terms of transactions before services are carried out or goods are delivered by the supplier.
When should I use a Purchase Order?
Use this Purchase Order:
- as a seller, to provide to customers when they buy your goods and services
- in addition to Terms and conditions, which protect your position
- for businesses located in England, Wales or Scotland
A purchaser may also use this Purchase Order to make a confirmation of the goods and/or services that they’re ordering. Remember that both parties must accept the terms of a Purchase Order for it to be binding.
