Any other information about payment terms

Kite Packaging enjoys long-term relationships with many international, national and local suppliers from sole traders to Plc’s. Our standard terms are E60 or E90 but we accommodate many different terms, especially small businesses and service providers, whose needs we can understand and accommodate. By prior agreement, we also pay some suppliers early, attracting an early settlement discount.
We endeavor to process invoices and resolve problems quickly and efficiently, a fact which is perhaps at odds with the statistics shown i.e. 74% of invoices being paid late. This is due to the timing of our payment runs which are generated just before each month end with funds arriving with suppliers 3 days later. The majority of these invoices, whilst late, are paid within 5 days of the due date.
