Bulk Payment System
Under this system, participating government departments or private organisations can do away with the tedious process of preparing individual payment vouchers for settlement of their electricity bills.
Federal/State Departments will authorise the Attorney-General/State Financial Officers to make payment from their respective annual allocations provided by the Federal/State Treasury.
For private organisations, payment can be made via the respective head offices and no longer via individual branches concerned.
For existing users, visit the myTNB Self Service Portal.
- Quick, easy and systematic billing and payment for the benefit of both parties
- Saves management and administrative costs
- Easier annual budget planning
- More effective electricity consumption monitoring of an organisation’s branch networks
- This service is absolutely free of charge.
Customers need only bear delivery costs for dispatch of tapes and cheques to TNB Headquarters.
- The SBP uses Microsoft Windows 2000. The program is in Flat File Structure format.
- The government accounts are processed once a month, ie. at the end of the first week of each month. Private sector accounts are processed weekly ie. at the end of each week.
- Meter reading and delivery of bills to premises remain unchanged. Customers will continue to receive their bills every month as usual for their records.
- Customers are also offered the option of having their bills delivered to their premises or sent to the postal address of their choice.
- For government departments, outstanding accounts can be settled via bulk bill payment in monthly installments of between 10% to 20% (subject to consideration) of the outstanding sum.
