Pay bills on time, firms told.
The BPPG is reminding businesses that, as well as being ethically wrong, deliberately paying later than agreed can be detrimental for economic reasons.
BPPG member Peter Rowe said: "The BPPG would like all firms to be responsible about paying suppliers on time. This is crucial if the UK's payment culture is to continue improving.
"Businesses need to remember that prompt payment can be as beneficial to them as it is to their suppliers. The way businesses manage their purchasing and sales relationships can have a direct effect on their profit margins, as a commitment to prompt payment can result in more co-operative partnerships and a better service from suppliers, with more attractive credit terms."
