Standard payment terms
Suppliers are paid net monthly, which is 30 days after the month in which the invoice is received. Subcontractors are paid on average 35 days after payment valuation is received.
The company continues to focus on its payment terms for those suppliers with less than 50 employees for whom we are required to pay 95% of invoices within 30 days. During the current reporting period for this supplier group payment performance shows 91% of invoices are being paid within 30 days.
Were there any changes to the standard payment terms in the reporting period?

Dispute resolution process
SRM are absolutely committed to fair dealing and fair payment with our supply chain. We also firmly believe that the emphasis of our business dealings are based on genuine, close relationships with our supply chain. These relationships, managed more and more in a structured way, ensure we very rarely have the need for formal dispute resolution processes. Where issues and challenges arise, resolution is hopefully addressed either at the project or procurement team level, dependent upon the nature of the agreement (sub-contract or purchase order). Where resolution cannot be found at this level, there is an escalation process within the business through procurement, finance & / or commercial management to ensure issues and challenges are satisfactorily addressed for both parties. This escalation process goes all the way to Chief Financial Officer at Executive Board level. We really do not expect anything to go beyond this level. Should formal dispute resolution be required, which is extremely unlikely, methods including mediation, adjudication, litigation and / or arbitration may be used.
