Prompt Payment Code
Langley Marketing Ltd t/a Langley Design, (providers of External Furniture) are signed up to the Prompt Payment Code and have had a 30-day payment procedure in place for more than 10 years.
The Prompt Payment Code (PPC) sets standards for payment practices and best practice and is administered by the Chartered Institute of Credit Management. Compliance with the principles of the Code is monitored and enforced by the Prompt Payment Code Compliance Board. The Code covers prompt payment, as well as wider payment procedures.
Cash is the fuel of growth for small and medium businesses and is crucial to their wellbeing. Without prompt payment, cash flow suffers, employees may not get paid and the livelihoods of many are put at risk.
We pride ourselves on our ethical stance and champion the cause of small and medium businesses.
