Cash flow is crucial for all business, I'm a small business and struggle to get any less than 45 days to month end, a real struggle at times.

The sub contractors portion of the payment made by main contractors client should be deposited in subcontractors designated bank accounts by a Act of Parliament. Small and Medium Enterprises have been used long enough by main contractors and verbal football by the politicians for the last twenty years as all indication points to the small and medium enterprises sector paying for the next twenty years the debt which is currently being incurred.
