Standard payment terms

Everwarm Ltd agrees payment terms with suppliers and sub-contractors as part of contract negotiations. Payment terms vary from a lower range of 7 days, to 60 days from end of month (i.e. up to a maximum of 91 days as noted above). Our initial standard terms are 30 days end of month.

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


Maximum contractual payment period agreed

91 days

The statistical information provided includes payments to both purchase ledger and sub-contract suppliers. Subcontractors are paid either weekly, fortnightly or monthly for the valuation of work performed - the valuation stipulated in the subcontractor's " application for payment " is subject to approval from our team of quantity surveyors.

Any other information about payment terms

Everwarm is committed to fair dealing with all of its supply chain members. Payment delays can occur in circumstances where agreement of payment from the end customer is delayed due to issues of rectification or validation of work performed by the supply chain. In those circumstances where we have delayed payments we pay our supply chain partners as soon as is reasonably practical thereafter.

Dispute resolution process

Everwarm actively seeks to resolve disputes by discussing them with the relevant suppliers or subcontractors, involving our accounts payable team as the first point of contact. The process may then involve commercial teams or senior management. Where it is not possible to reach agreement a number of dispute resolution methods such as mediation, adjudication, litigation and/or arbitration may be used.
