all party inquiry into late payments thanks Direct Debit bureua, eazipay

August 8, 2013

Eazipay Ltd, the UKs largest Direct Debit processing bureau, based in Cambridge, is among a handful of companies singled out for special thanks by a newly published Parliamentary report into the scandal of late payments to small businesses.

An All Party inquiry into late payments led by MP Debbie Abrahams, invited submissions and evidence from companies and organisations with a special interest in the issue of late payments.

One of the issues of particular concern to Eazipay is that the Prompt Payment Code, which was set up, by Government, to encourage timely payments to small companies, needs a complete overhaul and radical revision if it is to avoid becoming irrelevant.

Luisa Grey, Eazipays Director, commented: We were delighted to be invited to make a submission to the All Party inquiry and we are very happy to see that among its eleven recommendations is one that calls for a review and amendment of the Prompt Payment Code.

Deliberately withholding payments to small suppliers not only damages cash flow, but can seriously undermine the viability of a small company with potentially devastating consequences.

In order to highlight the scourge of late payments and the catastrophic damage it causes, Eazipay recently launched and e-petition, demanding more Government action to discourage companies from wilfully withholding payments to suppliers.

We are very grateful to Debbie Abrahams for turning a spotlight onto this issue and will continue our campaign calling on Government to toughen its stance on the iniquitous practice of companies starving suppliers of payments that are due to them, concludes Luisa.
