Current Consultation Papers

The following consultations are currently being considered:

The Small Business, Enterprise and Employment Bill currently before Parliament includes a measure to introduce a prompt payment reporting requirement through secondary legislation.

The Government has launched a consultation paper setting out its initial views on what should be in the secondary legislation on the duty for firms to publish information about their payment practices and performance. Please let us have your views on the main issues by completing this short survey by Friday 9 January 2015. The full consultation can be found here and the relevant paragraphs are indicated against each question.


Government wants to remove obstacles to obtaining invoice finance and, as one of the measures included in the Small Business, Enterprise & Employment Bill, BIS is proposing to introduce a regulation which would nullify any bans on invoice assignments that are put into contracts. The full consultation can be found here.

If you have any views or comments you wish to be reflected in the Institute’s response please submit them to by Wednesday 28 January 2015.
