If the yearend (March 31) makes responding to this request difficult, please base the response on the year end in the council’s latest annual report/financial accounts.
Please do not hesitate to get in touch if anything within this request is unclear.
In response to your FOI request, I can provide the following:
For the year ending 31st March 2016:
93.65% of invoices to local suppliers were paid in 20 days
95.47% of invoices to all suppliers were paid in 30 days
