Guest Speaker - Andrew Wilson, Senior Policy Adviser of the Small Business Service

- The UK's Late Payment Legislation: how the legislation works, who it applies to, the benefits it offers to businesses and how they can best take advantage those benefits;
- Credit Management Practices: some key points to consider;
- Private Sector Payment Performance League Tables: what they are, where to access them and how businesses can use them to inform themselves of the payment behaviour of potential customers.
