Payment terms

Standard payment terms

Although terms vary between suppliers, in general our contracts with main suppliers are based upon 45 day terms.

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


Maximum contractual payment period agreed

90 days

We make payments to suppliers on a bi-monthly basis, and hence this can result in our payments being made shortly after the due date.

In addition, we have informal agreements with specific large suppliers that we can make payments to at set periods, which are beyond the credit terms per the contract.

Any other information about payment terms


Dispute resolution process

Where we have a dispute, this is communicated to the supplier and resolved prior to payment being made.
