New proposals obliging large and listed companies to publish detailed information about their payment practices and performance have been unveiled by Business Minister Matthew Hancock [pictured].The changes will provide robust information making it easier for small businesses to â€œcompare the role models with the less reputable.â€ Specifically, the average payment time will be revealed; the proportion of invoices paid beyond terms; and the proportion of invoices paid within 30 days, over 30 days, over 60 days and over 120 days.The new proposals show â€œhow the government intends to use the prompt payment powerâ€ in the Small Business, Enterprise and Employment Bill which is currently going through Parliament. Reporting on a quarterly basis will be mandatory.
