Accounting, a division of the Finance Department, provides a
variety of financial services to employees as well as outside vendors. The division is responsible for payroll, accounts payable, accounts
receivable, as well as tracking debt, fixed assets, and all financial data
relevant to the City’s annual audited financial statements.
Accounting is located on the fourth floor of the Dunn Building
at 248 Craven Street, New Bern, North Carolina. The office hours are
Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
All new vendors will need to complete a W-9 form so that we have necessary tax ID information in the event
that you meet the requirements to be issued a 1099 for amounts
paid to you during a calendar year. You may access this form through
the IRS website at http://www.irs.gov/pub/irs-pdf/fw9.pdf. Once completed, the form should be mailed to the address below or
faxed to 252-636-4108.
Check writes are done every Thursday afternoon, and checks are normally
ready for distribution around noon on Fridays. If you have not arranged
beforehand to pick up your check, then it will be mailed to you. The general
deadline to receive invoices for payment is that invoices received in our
office by 5 p.m. Wednesday will be paid in the next week’s check write.
