Times are tough and cash is already tight, so payment problems are the last thing you need. That’s exactly where the Small Business Commissioner (SBC) can help. The SBC helps small businesses resolve disputes around late and unfair payment. They also provide free advice. This free service is for any small business (under 50 employees) suffering payment problems from their larger business customers (over 50 employees).
The SBC is an independent public body tackling late and unfavourable payment practices across the UK. So far, they’ve collected almost £7.5m in unpaid invoices.
The SBC provides advice and information to small businesses on:
- resolving disputes and dealing with an unpaid invoice
- checking contracts and getting invoices right
- signposting small businesses to existing support and dispute resolution services.
