Late payments cause 7 in 10 businesses to worry about cashflow

Fresh data from Time Finance has uncovered the true impact of late payments for SMEs with 75% of UK businesses worrying about cashflow as a direct result of overdue invoices from their customers.

In a recent survey into the worsening challenge of late payments, Time Finance found that chasing payments was damaging customer relationships for 17% of businesses, while 8% said the lack of essential working capital meant they were unable to afford key investments.

With the rising cost of doing business, 100% of SMEs now claim that more of their customers are paying late due to increased overheads across the board.
