What's inside this report?

This report is created by analysing trusted accounts receivable data from Creditsafe customers. In this report, we analysed almost 15 million invoices which were paid in Q1, 2018, 2019 & 2020 to identify trends and highlight the typical payment performance of companies within certain sectors.

This report shows the percentage of invoices paid on time or within terms, then up to 30 days late, up to 60 days late, up to 90 days late and beyond 90 days late. We have also included the average number of days beyond terms (DBT) for the sector and an indicator as to whether this is improving, stable or worsening.

While the report is not designed to be used as a stand-alone decision-making tool, we recommend that you use the information in it to benchmark your own accounts receivable performance against industry averages to identify potential areas of improvement or update existing credit policies.

Creditsafe relies on contributors to share accounts receivable data as part of our Global Trade Payment Data Programme. This insight, also used in our scores and presented in our credit reports, allows companies to make more informed trade credit decisions, reduce DSO, and limit exposure to bad debt.

All of this data is available within the Creditsafe platform.
