Would you like to see 2 invoices (totalling £153,250.61) for pre construction work on the Saughall Massie fire station project?
Below this are 2 two page invoices to Merseyside Fire and Rescue Service for work by their contractor Wates Construction Ltd. This is for pre-construction work on the Saughall Massie fire station (as far as I know a planning application hasn’t been yet submitted).
One invoice is for £99,686.90 (£119,623.31 including VAT) paid on the 4th March 2016, the second is for £28,022.75 (£33,627.30 including VAT) paid on the 17th March 2016.
There are also some emails that accompany the invoices which show:
a) The contractor originally didn’t put Saughall Massie on the invoice but Prescot (Prescot is about 18 miles away from Saughall Massie and is another fire station project),
b) Merseyside Fire and Rescue Service refused to pay the invoice until it was amended and Saughall Massie put on it,
c) the contractor submitted an amended invoice but then spelt Saughall Massie as Saughall Massey.
Sadly the valuation breakdowns of what these invoices were for which was included in the Draft Payment Notice e-mail has not been shared with me. Apologies if the images below take a while to load, I scanned them in in colour by mistake instead of black and white. This has the effect of increasing the file size.
