New 15-Day Payment Requirement, July 2011
The Government extended the non-statutory requirement applicable to Central Government Departments to all Local Authorities, State Agencies and Public Sector Bodies from July 2011, to reduce the payment period by Public Bodies to their suppliers from 30 to 15 days. Every effort, consistent with proper financial procedures, is being made to ensure that all suppliers are paid within this timeframe.
