Standard payment terms

The Company’s standard payment terms for non-construction contract related payments is 30 days. For construction contracts the payment terms are largely dependent on the specific requirements of individual projects.
When calculating the number of days to make payment, the Company has added 7 days to its statistics to reflect:
• the average period between the invoice issue date and it being entered onto the Company’s software system; and
• the general range of 7-10 days between the application date and due date for those contracts governed by the Housing Grant, Construction and Regeneration Act 1996.

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

Any other information about payment terms

The Company operates on standard payment terms of 30 days for non-construction related contracts, unless the Company agrees to different terms requested by a supplier.

Dispute resolution process

All queries regarding non-payment of invoices should be discussed with the Lendlease contact as specified on the Lendlease Purchase Order. Escalation can be managed through the Lendlease Customer Service team. Further escalation will be managed internally when required.
For any qualifying subcontracts, any dispute or difference between the parties are subject to the laws of England and Wales and the jurisdiction of the English courts. Payment under construction contracts is subject to statutory adjudication pursuant to the Housing Grant, Construction and Regeneration Act 1996. Only a very small proportion of our payments become the subject to the adjudication and/or court proceedings.
