Standard payment terms

With regards to qualifying contracts, Argus Media Limited does not dictate Standard Payment terms, and works closely with suppliers to ensure that all suppliers are paid as close to time as possible according to their individual supplier payment terms.
Our most common agreed payment terms are 30 days but we have several suppliers who have agreed payment terms of 45 and even 60 days.
As Argus does not dictate standard payment terms, there are no standard payments terms to be changed.

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