Standard payment terms

Payment terms are negotiated on a supplier by supplier basis. 30 days from end of month of invoice is the most common.

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


Maximum contractual payment period agreed

75 days

75 days represents some suppliers who are paid on terms of "60 days from end of month of invoice".

Any other information about payment terms

Our largest supplier, included in all the above statistics, is a related company by common ownership and we are not strictly held to contractual terms on those invoices,which contributes to the delays apparent in our headline statistics. Removing this related part from the statistics would significantly improve the average days to pay invoices. The company seeks to pay suppliers on time where possible, and 85% of third party supplier invoices have been paid on time or within 30 days of the due date during the reporting period.

Dispute resolution process

Concerns about supplier payment terms will be raised in the first instance with the Procurement team member in charge of that relationship. Any discussions will be supported by the finance / payments teams.
