Changes To Payment Policy: Small businesses in the Riverina and Central West will benefit from changes to Government’s payment policy. Member for Riverina Michael McCormack said Government would be required to pay invoices for contracts worth up to $1 million within 20 calendar days, instead of the current benchmark of 30 days. “This is good news for small business. Cash flow is crucial in allowing small businesses to thrive. Government is leading the way and big business should do the same.” By July, 2019, all non-corporate Commonwealth entities are to pay invoices for contracts up to $1 million within 20 calendar days on receipt of a correctly rendered invoice.
