Ordering and Invoicing

Cheshire Fire and Rescue Service (CFRS) have an electronic ordering and invoicing system. CFRS do not accept paper invoices from suppliers as a means of requesting payment. We use a company called OB10 to receive and send invoices electronically.

All of our suppliers must register with us.

How to register as a supplier

In order to become a supplier for CFRS, you must complete a Supplier Information Form (below) and email it to

Supplier information form (new window, Word Document 480KB)

Next, OB10 will contact the supplier using the information on the completed Supplier Information Form.

Once the supplier is established on the OB10 network, the supplier will be able to use OB10 network to send electronic invoices to existing customers who subscribe to the OB10 network.

Why use OB10

Moving to OB10 improved our payment times. Invoices are registered in CFRS accounts payable system without delay, bypassing common problems that hold up payment.
