In 2017, late payments continue to cause problems for many businesses across the United Kingdom and new research has suggested that 6 in 10 invoices are unpaid at due date. It’s a major concern that 70% of businesses rely heavily on being paid within terms to avoid a working capital downfall.

Research carried out by Amicus Commercial Finance has shown that unfortunately, matters are far, far worse than suggested. 1 in 6 SME invoices remains unpaid after 90 days which is actually quite alarming. Almost half are still outstanding after six months which is causing problems, left, right and centre. Further investigation has proven the SMEs are the worst affected and as such, are hit with the complications of severely stretched resources and cash flow gaps.

With all of this in mind, now is the time to take back control of your accounts, and get back what is rightfully yours. Read on to learn more about why it is important to take control now from one of the UK’s top debt collection agencies, Cobra Financial Solutions.
