Some departments are better at this than others having seen the figures from most now, however the department that is the worst at paying its bills promptly, is, amusingly for me at least, the Ministry of Justice.
On average only 62% of invoiced received by the Ministry of Justice get paid within 10 days of receipt. To be fair to them it may just because they lost the bank details of their suppliers so couldn't pay quick enough.
- Before you take on business with the Ministry of Justice, check their good for it first.
- Next time you get a fixed penalty notice tell them the cheque is in the post. What's good for the goose after all?
P.S. Sorry for the lack of blogposts yesterday, I was a bit under the weather.
