Payments which are overdue by more than 30 days will attract additional fees equal to 5% of the invoiced amount and are raised in line with the Late Payment of Commercial Debts Regulations 2013.
Accounts and invoices past 45 days of the posted payment due date will trigger our Debt Recovery Process. Within 7 days of this process, Credit Reference Agencies will be notified of the outstanding amount and proceedings for debt recovery will start. Additional costs incurred by debt recovery agents are passed on to the invoiced party and are also in line with the Late Payment of Commercial Debts Regulations 2013. Debt recovery costs are cummulative and can be made up of fixed costs associated with recovery, interest and compensation elements.
