Experts’ timely payment plan


BUSINESS experts are researching small firms’ attitudes to getting paid on time as part of a Government drive to combat late payments.

Graydon UK Ltd and The Forum of Private Business are to run the research after late payments seem to have increased and are threatening business survival in Derbyshire and elsewhere.

A survey, which is to be published in March, has also been asking small business owners about cash flow management, the frequency and impact of low payment, their own delays in paying suppliers and their prompt payment incentives for customers.
