Payment delays among Singapore firms continued to rise for another quarter as the economy’s coronavirus-induced partial lockdown bit suppliers.
A report from the Singapore Commercial Credit Bureau (SCCB) said slow payments, defined as those made at least 30 days late, increased to 45.78% in the second quarter, up 3.2 percentage points from 42.58% in the first quarter. Year-on-year, delayed payments were up 8.6 percentage points.
