Name and Shame Late Payers?

Late Payment Clients Not a Problem with Invoice Finance

Late Payment Clients Not a Problem with Invoice Finance!

Since the Carillion collapse, many MPs and industry officials have passed comment on the way the corporation operated, in particular the way it paid its suppliers.

And it’s the way in which large, dominating corporations pay their suppliers – in particular the late nature of payments - that has been raised by Paul Uppal, Small Business Commissioner and former Conservative MP.

Mr Uppal has highlighted that many subcontractors of Carillion were paid on the company’s 120 day terms, regardless of the sub-contractor’s own terms, for example, 30 or 45 days – citing that he is prepared to ‘name and shame’ companies over their late payment practices.

It’s the result of this late payment culture by Carillion, that has lead to thousands of companies facing bankruptcy or being forced to make big cuts in employment.

Sadly, here at Capital Corporate Finance, we know only too well that late payment is a huge problem. It’s all too real, effecting businesses of many sizes, established or start ups.

* SMEs are carrying out the work fairly, on time and on budget.

* This work is done incurring operating costs such as machinery and materials, way over and above those of labour and employment.

* Yet most SMEs are waiting over four month to receive payment!
