Re: Hmm.

You mean wait a full year and then only pay a part?

This is simply the ultimate consequence of what MBAs get taught: any delay on payment you can get off a vendor is free credit, but it results in a chain of late payments elsewhere and not all suppliers have that sort of liquidity.

That is why we now work with partial pre-payment - we have others to pay, and I refuse to victimise others.
