Payment Still Major Concern Despite Increased Workload

Specialist Contractors are still suffering from late payment on public sector projects despite an upturn in workload.

According to the latest survey payment remains a major concern for building services firms, with just 8 per cent of Specialist Contractors saying that public sector work was paid on time. And the private sector was even worse with just six per cent of respondents being paid within 30 days.

ECA CEO Steve Bratt said: “… payment continues to be a major concern to Specialist Contractors across the industry, with the overwhelming majority indicating that they are not paid within 30 days, which is now the widely understood measure of good practice”.

So, if you are not getting paid properly then don’t fall for the Contractor’s BS, because it is highly likely (there are some exceptions), that what they are telling you is a pack of lies.

Please don’t stand for late or underpayment.

Take action!
