Standard payment terms

Our standard terms vary due to the type of supply and are agreed as part of contract negotiations. Suppliers are predominantly paid on 30 days from the month end of invoice, whilst key consultants are paid on 7 day terms. Subcontractors, dependant on contract terms, are paid on 30, 35 or 42 day terms, following the date of assessment.

Dispute resolution process

There are two types of disputes:
1. Where the site team have not certified the valuation, the site team are tasked to speak with and resolve any differences with the Supply chain/Sub-contractor directly.
2. Where the site team have certified the works and are satisfied the supplier should be paid, there are instances where the Finance team require additional
information like insurance details, VAT invoice, Self-billing agreements or CIS verification, in which case the Finance team would request and resolve these issues directly with the supplier.
