star this property answer text <p>The Prompt Payment Code (‘the Code’) encourages businesses to aim for 30-day payment terms as the norm, with 60 days as the maximum. Signatories commit to paying 95% of invoices within 60 days, unless there are exceptional circumstances.</p><p> </p><p>In the recent Government Response to the Creating a Responsible Payment Culture Call for Evidence we announced that responsibility for the Code is to move to the Small Business Commissioner and that the Code will be reformed, following engagement with existing Code signatories. We are also keen to increase the number of businesses signed up to the Code.</p><p> </p><p>UK legislation already establishes maximum 30-day payment terms for transactions with public authorities and 60-day payment terms between businesses, unless they agree longer terms and those terms are not grossly unfair to the supplier.</p><p> </p><p>Government has worked closely with trade bodies and businesses to develop this. Mike Cherry, FSB National Chairman, said of the recent announcement: “Small businesses will be delighted with today’s announcement” and “the measures today could finally see an end to poor payment practice. Changing our business culture will boost the small business community, productivity and growth.”</p>

star this property answer text <p>The Immigration Act 2016 introduced the provision for three labour market enforcement bodies to serve labour market enforcement undertakings (LMEU) and orders (LMEO): the Employment Agency Standards (EAS) Inspectorate, the Gangmasters and Labour Abuse Authority (GLAA) and Her Majesty’s Revenue and Customs – National Minimum Wage Team (HMRC – NMW).</p><p> </p><p>To date, no prosecution has resulted from breaching a labour market enforcement undertaking or order.</p><p> </p><p>Each enforcement body has a different legal framework for the disclosure of information related to LMEUs. Both EAS and HMRC – NMW cannot disclose the name of the employers or the nature of the offences without informed consent from the employers involved as this would be in breach of their respective customer confidentiality clauses. Section 9 of the Employment Agency Act precludes EAS from publishing the name or details of enforcement action without the permission of the employment business or agencies involved. Section 18 of the Commissioners for Revenue and Customs Act (CRCA) 2005 precludes HMRC from disclosing/sharing information about an individual or taxpayer to a third party.</p><p> </p><p>The GLAA routinely discloses the dates and the type of trigger offences for which its LMEUs are served. Whilst the Gangmasters (Licensing) Act 2004 does not preclude the GLAA from disclosing the names of the recipients of LMEUs, the GLAA does not deem appropriate to release their identity. Identity disclosure would defeat the purpose of LMEUs which are a voluntary agreement meant to be a proportionate sanction to encourage compliant behaviour from the recipient.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p>The table below displays the information that could be disclosed by the three enforcement bodies:</p><p> </p><table><tbody><tr><td><p><strong>Enforcement Body</strong></p></td><td><p><strong>Number of LMEU served</strong></p></td><td><p><strong>Date of commencement</strong></p></td><td><p><strong>Trigger offence</strong></p></td></tr><tr><td rowspan="2"><p><strong>EAS</strong></p></td><td><p>4</p></td><td><p>04/04/18</p></td><td><p>Not disclosed</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>1</p></td><td><p>03/04/18</p></td><td><p>Not disclosed</p></td></tr><tr><td rowspan="10"><p><strong>GLAA</strong></p></td><td><p>1</p></td><td><p>20/03/18</p></td><td rowspan="10"><p>All these LMEUs have been issued for trigger offences under section 12 and 13 of the Gangmasters Licensing Act 2004 which respectively refer to acting as an unlicensed gangmaster and using labour supplied by an unlicensed gangmaster.</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>1</p></td><td><p>22/05/18</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>1</p></td><td><p>21/06/18</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>1</p></td><td><p>13/07/18</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>1</p></td><td><p>23/07/18</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>1</p></td><td><p>16/08/18</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>3</p></td><td><p>21/08/18</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>1</p></td><td><p>31/12/18</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>4</p></td><td><p>15/04/19</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>1</p></td><td><p>26/04/19</p></td></tr><tr><td rowspan="8"><p><strong>HMRC - NMW</strong></p></td><td><p>1</p></td><td><p>19/06/18</p></td><td><p>Not disclosed</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>1</p></td><td><p>27/06/18</p></td><td><p>Not disclosed</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>1</p></td><td><p>21/08/18</p></td><td><p>Not disclosed</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>1</p></td><td><p>05/11/18</p></td><td><p>Not disclosed</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>1</p></td><td><p>22/10/18</p></td><td><p>Not disclosed</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>1</p></td><td><p>30/10/18</p></td><td><p>Not disclosed</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>1</p></td><td><p>16/11/18</p></td><td><p>Not disclosed</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>1</p></td><td><p>07/03/19</p></td><td><p>Not disclosed</p></td></tr><tr><td><p> </p></td><td><p>Total: 28</p></td><td><p> </p></td><td><p> </p></td></tr></tbody></table>
