Our payment performance on invoices

​See how we performed in the last financial year on invoice payment to suppliers.
Financial year Percentage of invoices paid within 30 days Interest (£'s) actually paid to suppliers Interest (£'s) potentially liable to pay**
2017/18 81% £588**** £468,249
2016/17 67% Not recorded*** £750,369


The percentage of invoices paid within 30 days relates to the number of invoices paid rather than their value.

** This data includes invoices that may have been in dispute. This value is therefore an overestimate of the potential interest.

*** The interest paid has not been monitored and we cannot identify this retrospectively. We will monitor and record interest paid from December 2017 onwards.

****Paid since December 2017.
