Our standard terms and conditions of contracts for goods and services say that:

  • we will pay a correctly submitted invoice within 30 days of receipt for contracted work that has been correctly performed (an identical provision exists so that any sub contractors are similarly treated by the main contractor)
  • we have introduced strict monitoring of these targets

Suppliers can help by ensuring all necessary details are included on invoices, that they are correctly addressed, and that you let us know quickly about any change of name and address.
