UK recovery threatened by £75bn trade credit gap

The research is based on new analysis of 15 million limited company reports filed between 1998 and 2012, conducted by Professor Nick Wilson of the Credit Management Research Centre highlighting British businesses owe £75bn to their peers as trade credit hits record levels and threatens to damage the UK’s fragile economic recovery.

“The analysis shows that the UK faces a very different business debt challenge in this recovery, one which will require a new, proactive, management approach for the use of trade credit if businesses are to thrive and survive.” said Professor Nick Wilson. “Smart buyers are starting to think more strategically about managing credit from their supply chains and adopting practices where it is in their interest to pay early, such as reduced cost of goods, better supplier health, reduced risk and exclusive supplier relationships. For suppliers, having more control over when to receive payment, can address many of the challenges highlighted by this report – such as certainty of payment, enhanced cash-flow and a much reduced risk profile with traditional lenders.”
