Normally there would be a form of agreement on the reverse of the invoice, containing the T&C, ie. acceptance of the goods indicates the entry into an agreement, ie pay within 30 days etc.


If they are stating that you have received goods but have not paid for them, then the burdon of proof is with them, they would need to provide evidence that you received the goods and are therefore liable.


In the case of an ongoing dispute with running credit, but without a delivery note or similar, then they would need to demonstrate a trading relationship between you and them, that you had previously obtained goods from them and subsequently paid for them. otherwise it's your word against theirs that a financial relationship ever existed.

Hope this helps
