The Complete Guide to the Late Payment of Commercial Debts

Affiliated to The Credit Protection Association Limited. Helping UK businesses get paid for over 100 years www.cpa.co.uk

In 1997, the Government in partnership with leading business organisations launched the Better Payment Practice Campaign. They implemented a basket of measures to help businesses get paid on time. When the Group completed their work in 2008, some members of the original team asked to keep this website running.

The purpose of the site is to provide a resource of information to support businesses get paid on time and to provide a community for businesses that support prompt payment to be able to engage with each other.

The site will always be free for anyone to use and get involved with. Products and services offered on the site will always be driven by supporter need and details of supporters will never be offered to any third party. In this way we will always keep to the purpose of the site, to help businesses get paid on time.
