Demystifying Payment Practice Legislation: Turning Compliance To Competitive Advantage With Philip King FCICM

Wednesday 17th October, 12:00 - 13:00 BST

Do you understand the impact of the latest 'Payment Practice' legislation and Prompt Payment Code on your business?

Despite 19 new payment initiatives since 2004, payment obligations remain a challenge across the construction industry. And with the top 20 contractors taking an average of 47 days to pay invoices (9 more than the UK average), the difficulties are evident.

But with this challenge comes a genuine opportunity: There are ways in which compliance and business effectiveness can run in parallel.

In this upcoming webinar, Philip King FCICM will explore this in detail, debunking common myths and rumours to demystify the impact of the new ‘Duty To Report on Payment Practice and Performance' legislation and the Prompt Payment Code on your business.

This webinar will also look at how digital processes can underpin compliance whilst also improving business efficiency, supply chain relations and competitive advantage.

You will be able to request a CPD Certificate at the end of the webinar. Please be aware that the name you sign up with will be printed on your certificate.
