Thanks for your recent work with us! 

If this is your first time getting paid by City Bureau please click here for full instructions. If you know the drill, use the form at the bottom of this page to upload your invoice.

Please make sure your invoice includes the following:

• Your name
• Your full address, including city, state, and zip code
• The date of the invoice
• The service provided and the date it was provided ("ex. August 4th city council meeting documenters notes")
• The amount due
• A unique invoice number (Ex. #001, #002)

You can download a sample completed invoice here. We used to make this one–it's simple and free.

As a general rule City Bureau processes all invoices within 14 days of receipt for direct deposit within 21 days.

Invoices received by end of day on Friday to be processed on the next Monday. Payments take 5 business days to deposit, so a reimbursement processed on a Monday will be in your account by the following Monday. Requests received over the weekend or on Mondays will be pushed to the following week's cycle and can take as long as 17 days to deposit. Bank holidays can also delay this cycle.

If you'd like us to run the reimbursement sooner than the next coming Monday check "off-cycle request" in the form and we'll get to it as soon as possible.

If you have any questions about payment please email Harry Backlund at
