town hall 4If you do business with the islands’ Council you should be paid promptly.

A freedom of information request has revealed that all of the bills sent to the Town Hall between 1st April and the end of October last year were settled within 10 working days.

There were 2,802 bills received during those seven months.

Slow payment of invoices can cause cash flow problems for small business.

The government has recognised this and recently asked organisations to sign-up to the Prompt Payment Code, after figures revealed that smaller suppliers wait on average 41 days longer for payment than their contract stipulates.
