Late or non-payment problems

In contracting is there anything that can be done to improve the payment periods and certainty of amount, the amount to be paid and the payment date?

The answer is a qualified yes, since no one can guarantee same.

It all starts with the Contract terms and Conditions. Get these wrong and you will be swimming against the tide.

The next stage is to comply with the requirements of the Contract in terms of making applications for payment, the submission of appropriate notices and the preparation and maintenance of adequate records to support the aforementioned.

No rocket science there then! It is quite remarkable however, in our experience, how many companies do not deploy and/or police adequate systems to address these basics.

Prevention in our experience is less expensive than cure and by putting sound procedures in place and policing them it can lead to increased cash flow and profitability.

In an attempt to assist our current and potential clients in reviewing how effective their policies and procedures are, we are introducing a new service (Mini Commercial Risk Audit) as detailed on our news page.
