Lovetts Plc have conducted some late payment analysis and the results show that since Q1 2014 businesses have become busier - this is based on the volume of invoices being issued and now being chased for payment.
Great news for business owners.
However it's not all coming up roses as many businesses are battling late payment with the number of bad debts on their books having increased by almost a third.
Despite the boom in business prospects, the problem remains that late payment is becoming increasingly widespread, and this is despite Government attempts to tackle the issue.
