Morgan Sindall operates shorter payment terms in certain circumstances, including where we have specific payment commitments on frameworks with key customers e.g. 30 days. This is reflected in our average days to pay, when compared to our standard payment terms of 75 days for purchase ledger suppliers, and 49 days (from valuation date) for subcontractors.
