  • Late payments to small businesses | Alok Sharma MP - Member of Parliament for Reading West
    businesses with which I have been in contact A machined plastic parts supplier that has been doing business for 50 years without any problems suddenly found that a large company it had been dealing with demanded payment of a non negotiable fee to a third party to remain on an approved supplier list The supplier said that it had reported the situation to the large company s own ethics team who seem to think it is normal business practice and I have had it confirmed that we will be de listed if we do not pay An SME with 10 people and a turnover of less than 2 million that supplies goods and services to large telecommunications companies in the UK and Ireland contacted me I could write a book on the various hoops we have to jump through The examples provided by the SME include self imposed cash arrangements by large companies and pressure to accept long payment terms A direct supplier to a local authority contacted me It has had that contract for a long time but it was suddenly told that it had to procure work through a particular procurement portal The supplier told me It was free to register ignoring the not insignificant effort in doing so but the portal company then informed us that a 5 fee will be deducted from your agreed rate for each work opportunity you secure via the portal That is a 5 mandatory fee being put on a small business which is completely unacceptable The owner of the business went on to tell me in conversation In our opinion as a small business unable to fight the process this amounts to supplier bullying I have had businesses in the construction sector contact me One said Our industry construction is full of poor payment practices despite the Construction Act Finally a service provider that supports pharma and medical device companies across Europe wrote We have experienced very late payments with UK based companies only either by paying after 90 days or after starting legal proceedings In contrast working for a German based company we do get our invoices settled usually within 2 weeks The hon Member for North Antrim Ian Paisley made a point about corporate culture As we have heard these problems are cross sector and do not relate to just one part of British industry Having run a business in Germany myself I can tell the House from personal experience that German corporates are generally pretty good at paying on time In Britain some large businesses have developed a culture of late payment over the years Squeezing small suppliers has been considered normal business practice and hang the negative consequences for the supplier The risk of late payment in Britain is considered to be higher than in many other European nations according to the latest European payment index and it is clearly not an acceptable way of carrying on In the past few days colleagues will have seen the
