EU Monitoring Report 33 - Fighting Late Payments Directive


Fighting Late Payments Directive

Such late payments not only affect liquidity and complicate the financial management of companies, they also affect companies’ competitiveness and profitability, e.g. when the company needs to obtain external financing because of the late payment.
