Any other information about payment terms
Morgan Sindall is aiming to pay all of it suppliers within 60 days as demonstrated by the change in standard terms in 2019, which has led to 98% of invoices now being paid within 60 days. In response to the new guidance issued to pay small companies (<50 employees) within 30 days, and our commitment as a responsible business, we have implemented changes to our core process to be able to identify companies in this category and ensure payment terms are set appropriately. We remain focused on meeting the challenges of improving on our paid to terms performance, and we will continue to collaborate with our supply chain partners to make the overall payment process as efficient as possible.
Dispute resolution process
