The majority of payments are made via a weekly BACS. Where agreements have been made with suppliers to pay on a specific day, this is honoured. The longest payment terms are negotiated through Supply Chain Finance.

Dispute resolution process

Disputes relating to payment of invoices will be resolved through communication between the Shared Service Centre, the local Sourcing team or factory and the supplier. Once disputes have been resolved, every effort is made to pay the invoice at the earliest opportunity if the payment due date has been passed.
