Standard payment terms

A large proportion of the company's suppliers have agreed different payment terms, most commonly 30 days after receipt of invoice. The company makes bulk weekly payment runs, therefore invoices are usually paid on the payment run that is closest to the due date on a supplier's invoice.

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


Maximum contractual payment period agreed

30 days

Any other information about payment terms

As the company's standard payment practice is a payment run once a week, any invoices paid after the due date tend to be ones that were not due on the date of the previous week's payment run and therefore payment can run overdue.

Dispute resolution process

The main method of resolving these is via both parties' commercial contacts.
