Follow Up your invoices through our Invoice Status Tool

What is our Invoice Status Tool (IST)?

IST offers our suppliers an improved experience in following up on invoices and validating account statements. It is the fastest and most straight forward way to reach Accounts Payable teams in Smith & Nephew Business Services for any AP queries.
