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 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.
