    we have never worked for them but bloody hell
    how can that be good
    i thought they had signed up to a gov promise on payment terms

    it goes to show that the big boys dont give 2 hoots about those they stand on to keep their name on the leader board and the gov can get a paper signed but it is just that paper to be shredded when convenient

    No good for small firms. I have worked for some big firms over the years and although always paying the men on time they are quite content to let suppliers wait a lot longer than 120 days for payment!!

    There is a lot to be said for staying small and earning a good living , most my customers pay 30 days max , and a good few will always sort you out quicker if your stuck.
    Had one last week where the builder paid me before we even layed a base plate

    Same here,i'm trying not to touch the big boys as their the ones that feck your cashflow right up,most of the baddies have gone bust in recent years,just done a small outage on a power station and the same firm are starting a new build with five years work from this summer,i'd like to just do the electrical and mechanicals but it's all or nothing,i done the newbuild on the one that we've just done the outage on so they know and trust us but this one is five times the size so i'm dithering on whether to go for it or not lol,of course i'd have to win the job first but a job like that is all consuming unless your one of the big boys
