Atradius payment practices barometer: Western Europe

The Atradius survey of B2B payment practices interviewed approximately 3,000 businesses across 14 countries in Western Europe. In addition to payment practices, the survey looks at challenges to profitability, credit management practices and DSO. According to survey respondents in Western Europe of the Atradius Payment Practices Barometer, on average, 37.6% of the total value of their B2B receivables was defaulted on with 4.9% remaining unpaid after 90 days past due. Despite forecasts of improving economic conditions in many countries, falling demand and cash flow are considered by respondents to be their biggest challenges to profitability this year. Andreas Tesch, Chief Market Officer of Atradius N.V. stated: "We are anticipating improvement in some key markets like Spain, the Netherlands, Denmark and Ireland, but in most markets our 2014 forecasts are for insolvency levels stabilizing, and in many cases at high levels. The insolvency level in the Eurozone for instance is twice as high as in the period before the crisis and in the Eurozone periphery markets more than 3 ½ times higher."
