Standard payment terms

Morgan Sindall operates shorter payment terms in certain circumstances, including where we have specific payment commitments on frameworks with key

Were there any changes to the standard payment terms in the reporting period?

Yes – The maximum contractual payment period was 75 days. However payment terms have been changed in the reporting period so that no supply is undertaken on terms of no more than 60 days. It is expected that maximum terms for the next reporting period will be 60 days.

Were suppliers notified or consulted about these changes before they were made?


Maximum contractual payment period agreed

75 days

Morgan Sindall is aiming to pay all of it suppliers within 60 days as demonstrated by the change in terms in the current reporting period. Morgan Sindall continues to work on more favourable payment structures with its supply chain partners, and will continue to improve on its average days to pay performance. The challenge will be going forward to continue to improve on our paid to terms performance. This is due to the shorter turnaround times available to deal with and resolve invoice queries, and secure credit notes which relate to over billing. Morgan Sindall is keen to continue to collaborate with its supply chain partners in order to make its overall payment process as efficient as possible.
