Invoice requirements

The Financial Shared Service Centre (FSSC) hosts the UG's complete accounts payable department. For an efficient and correct processing of your invoice, it's important that your invoice contains several specific criteria.

Invoices not meeting the requirements as mentioned below, will not be processed and will be returned to sender.

In addition to the legal requirements, it is essential that specific information is stated on the invoice, namely:

  • (Purchase) ordernumber, job number or reference (mandatory, 9-character or 6-character)
  • VAT-number of the UG: NL001932706B01 (if business abroad)

The (purchase) order number can be found on the purchase order that you have received from us. If you received no order number or job number, always ask the buyer for a reference (cost center 9-character or project number 6-character) and state this clearly on the invoice.

In the heading of the invoice, the address should be stated as following:

University of Groningen FSSC
<name of faculty or service>
Postbus 3
9700 AA Groningen


University of Groningen FSSC
<name of faculty or service>
Blauwborgje 10
9747 AC Groningen

We would like to receive your invoice in the following way:

* E-invoicing with Peppol

What is PEPPOL? Our Peppol ID: 0106:01179037.

* E-mail

Each individual invoice including any attachments should be sent in one PDF file and (if applicable) a XML file format UBL2.1 SI (Simpler Invoicing). It is important that the invoice is provided in a ‘read-only’ PDF format to be sent:

Self-employed or freelance?

Are you self-employed or a freelancer? In case you were hired via Jellow (only in Dutch), you should put the hiring number on the invoice.

Guest teacher / Guest lecture

There are two ways to receive a reimbursement if you provided a lecture as a guest teacher.

Claim costs

You are not working for the UG but are still owed money by the University and have permission to claim costs? For example, because you are an emeritus professor, student or external staff member? In this case, you can submit your expense claims via the external UG Claims portal.

There are two types of expense claims:

  • Those affiliated with a P number: travel expenses, other costs
  • Those not affiliated with a P number: guest lecturer, applicant, other. If you do not have a P number but want to submit multiple expense claims, then you may also make a personal account for this via the portal.

Expense claims are verified by the Financial Shared Service Centre (FSSC). Compensation is paid out once a week.

Travel bookings

You are a foreign guest of the UG / you are not working for the UG and you have to book a trip? Please contact your contact within the UG (often this is the secretariat of the relevant faculty or service) so you can book your trip.
