More Damming Reports on Harmful Late Payers

Posted: 23rd March 2018

Yet again, a damming report has been released over late payers and the detrimental effect they are having on SME businesses.

Last month, the Small Businesses Commissioner (and former Conservative MP), Paul Uppal went on record to say that late payers should be ‘named and shamed’. Whilst, Mike Cherry, Chairman of the Federation of Small Businesses has likened late payers to nothing more than ‘supply chain bullies’.

Now, a further piece of evidence has been unveiled this week, citing that over 25% of SMEs are owed more than £40,000 each.

How can a business look to grow, development, invest and expand when it is owed tens of thousands of pounds – their cashflow drying up quicker than it can be topped up? 

It’s shocking and alarming!

SMEs make up 60% of the private sector and their well being and stable cashflow is essential to sustaining a sound UK economy.
