Although the UK economy is showing improvements, a late payment culture remains a problem for SMEs. The latest banking and finance survey conducted by the Forum of Private Businesses shows that businesses are keen to see more measures to tackle the issue.

23% reported an increase in late payments over the past year, while just 3% saw a decrease.

29% have seen an increase in the average number of days beyond the deadline that a payment is made late.

39% would like to see prompt payment better promoted.

37% would prefer to pay VAT on money that has entered their account rather than when an invoice is submitted.

36% want persistent late payers barred from government contacts.

Two recent studies conducted by ICM Research demonstrate businesses’ positive attitudes towards hiring apprentices and young people. In particular, a large number of employers indicated they wanted to do more to help young people in their area to find work. One study focused on apprentices and the second examined the hiring of young people and school leavers. http://www.imagereportsmag.co.uk/data/4909-businesses-show-support-for-young-people-and-apprentices
