Moving from an average of 99 to 93 days, contractual payment terms remain long and widespread. Nearly half of those surveyed said they had experienced delays of more than 180 days. The maximum legal time limit of between 60 and 90 days is therefore far exceeded. But it should be noted that companies have noticed an improvement over the last six months, with a special mention for government services and public companies, who are proving to be better payers. This shortening of deadlines is also observed in the four main sectors: information and communication technologies (from 107 days to 86 days), construction (from 105 to 100), distribution (from 102 to 96), and agri-food (from 90 to 86).
