Event description

Description

The Small Business Commissioner (SBC) is an independent public body set up by Government under the Enterprise Act 2016 to tackle late payment and unfavourable payment practices in the private sector.

FSB’s recent #fairpayfairplay campaign has highlighted how small businesses are still being squeezed. The campaign calls on Government to enlist the help of Non-Executive Directors, strengthen payment enforcement and adopt Project Bank Accounts in public procurement, as three key reforms that will help end the poor payment crisis in the UK.


The Commissioner urges small businesses affected by late or unfair payment practices to use the SBC’s complaint investigation service and promises to take action to tackle the worst examples of supply chain bullying.


Join us for this roundtable event with Casework Manager Jacquie Moore who will discuss how the Small Business Commissioner Office enforces payment terms and how SMEs can use their services for support completely free of charge.
