Subject: Compliance with the Late Payment Directive should be conditional for the companies receiving Next Generation EU Funds in Spain
According to the Plataforma Multisectorial contra la Morositat, “half a million companies are at risk of bankruptey mainly due to late payments”, in Spain.
Data extracted from the Commission Nacional del Mercado de Valores show that, in the first half of 2020, the late payment in commercial transactions of Ibex 35 companies was 56,488 million euros. The average payment term of these companies in 2020 was 193 days, when the legal term is 60 days (in 2019 it was 183 days).
The Spanish Supreme Court (STS 668/2016) declared null and void all agreements to make payments over 60 days, but large companies continue to breach the Late Payment Directive 2011/7 / EU. As it does not have a sanctioning regime, it is possible that many of these companies may receive European funds, leaving out of fair competition solvent SMEs that comply with all European regulations.
Does the Commission believe that complying with the Late Payment Directive should be conditional for the companies receiving Next Generation EU Funds?
