I have to send an email to my London accounting colleagues about a supplier payment.
Is this following sentence correct ?
- The supplier is chasing for his latest invoice payment. Could you please get it processed ? thanks.
Thanks for your help

I think you want, 'The supplier is looking for the latest or last invoice payment.'

Yes, I can find "chase" but not "chase for".
I would have used : - The supplier is demanding /asking for/ his last/latest invoice payment.

Gerondif's suggestion to use demanding /asking for/ his last/latest invoice payment may be what you meant.
It was not clear to me why the supplier would be looking for an invoice. Suppliers invoice the customer and customers pay the invoice. Maybe I should have confirmed the context before posting...

Thank you all.
One of my colleagues in London sent this email to accounting because a supplier was claiming his payment :
"Hi Accounts team, we are being chased for this one, any idea when it may be paid?"
difficult for me to understand the use of "being chased" in context.

OK, it sounds like the supplier is waiting for payment from your company on the latest invoice that they sent and would like you to make sure that the payment is sent as soon as possible. When they say that they are being 'chased' it may mean that the supplier's company is pressuring the accounts receivable department to get the payment.
My husband is in the customer service department and deals with these types of requests from other companies.
I hope this helps!
