BCC welcomes improvements to Prompt Payment Code

19th January 2021

Suren Thiru, Head of Economics at the BCC, comments on reformed prompt payment code

Suren Thiru, said: 

“With firms continuing to face major cash flow difficulties, and our research suggesting that late payments have risen during the pandemic, businesses will be encouraged by the launch of a reformed prompt payment code. 

“The improved code must be the first step in creating a culture of prompt payment where affected firms feel confident to call out bad practices, government uses its convening power to tackle this issue in sectors where it is clear that problems exist, and where there is a clear focus on improving relationships between businesses to address the problem of late payment.”
