The last few months have been hectic working for several construction organisations who are members of the various bodies that make up CICV.

I have seen an alarming increase in the number of organisations that are suffering from payment and cash flow issues, and these are probably putting a strain on the finances of the business and more strain on the mental health of those who run the businesses. What appears to be a regular feature is that organisations don’t respond to payment applications, don’t respond to emails requesting information and just put up a wall of silence, and then they start to reduce payment applications with some spurious excuses, and contracting organisations go round and round not knowing where they are going.

By inventing all sorts of excuses one can keep a subcontractor at arm’s length for weeks if not months, providing prevaricating excuses for not paying.
