Frequently Asked Questions

Q: How can I determine what each item on my check stub or payment detail means?

A: View our AP Check Stub Example.

Q: Why is backup withholding deducted from my AP check?

A: A valid Tax Identification Number or Social Security Number must be provided to Chesapeake for reporting and identification purposes. If it is not, the Internal Revenue Service requires withholding of 28% of all payments (30% for foreign residents) until the information is provided. Per the IRS guidelines all vendors are required to have a W-9 on file with Chesapeake Energy regardless of tax status. The W-9 must include the vendor name, address, SSN or EIN, signature and date.

Q: What are stale-dated checks?

A: Our accounts payable checks are not negotiable after 90 days. If you did not deposit your check within that time frame, we must re-issue the check. Please email Supplier Relations or call 877-245-1427.

Q: Who do I contact if I receive payment for an amount different than what was billed?

A: Please check the Invoice Discrepancies information in the Supplier Portal for explanations of payment discrepancies. If you would like to discuss this matter further please email Supplier Relations or call 877-245-1427.
