Standard terms are the longest we offer excluding customers covered on supply chain financing where terms can be longer although suppliers receive payment in 11 days.

Any other information about payment terms

The Company makes external supplier payments twice weekly for all invoices currently due, this results in a proportion of invoices paid later than terms. These should though be paid within 2 working days of the due date. The majority of the Companies transactions are with other Group Companies. This is driving the % not paid within terms.

Dispute resolution process

Is agreed on a contract by contract basis.
