Under Directive 2011/7/EU, all member states had to transpose into their national legislation by 16 March 2013 new provisions for combating late payments in commercial transactions. How has implementation of the Directive progressed? We'll discuss:
- Analysis of the Directive's provisions and issues stemming from failed harmonization between member states, including disparities in payment periods.
- A focus on French, Romanian, and Italian rules, including differences between possible exceptions, control procedures, and sanctions.
- Practical steps European companies can take to adapt to the new laws.
Gain new insights on the complexities created by uneven implementation of the Directive and explore ways your company can navigate them.
