In this episode, our CEO Ant Persse, talks to Matt Blakeley, the Network Development Manager of the Smart Manufacturing Alliance (SMA) about how we’re supporting SMEs cashflow by incentivising large buying organisations to offer early payments throughout their supply chains to reduce late payments and keep cash flowing between businesses.

It is estimated that 82% of businesses fail not because of lack of profit, but through lack of cash. Yet, studies suggest UK SMEs are currently waiting on almost £200bn tied up in unpaid invoices.

Saltare is proud to be one of the Smart Manufacturing Alliance’s partners.

We recently spoke to Liz Barclay, the current Small Business Commissioner – a post created to help small businesses secure the payments owed to them and to galvanise UK businesses behind a new culture of prompt and fair payment.

During the conversation we discussed the impact of poor payment practices on UK small and micro businesses, and how the uncertainty of payment affects all elements of their enterprise including how they manage their cashflow, make decisions on recruitment & investment and importantly, the mental heath impact.

We also discussed how larger businesses can support small and micro businesses by employing good payment practices. And the benefits that has on creating a sustainable supply chain.

Our CEO, Anthony Persse and our NED, Philip King spoke to Mark Hart, Deputy Director of the Enterprise Research Centre (UK) on the ‘Exploring Enterprise’ podcast. The podcast, titled ‘Changing the late payment culture’ is a topic very close to our mission and one that we are very passionate about.

In this snippet our CEO Anthony Persse discusses how uncertainty around payments causes huge amounts of stress and anxiety to suppliers.
