We aim to deal with our suppliers in an open and honest way and require all our suppliers to sign our standard terms and conditions in advance of commencing trade. As a large business, our twice-yearly payment information remains in the public domain and is summarised below. The average time taken to pay suppliers in the period was 45 days (FY20: 46 days), and we consistently paid 99% of our invoices within agreed terms (FY20: 98%).
