The Business Council of Australia recognised Anywise Consulting today as the first mon-member signatory to the Australian Supplier Payment Code, which was launched by the Business Council on Monday 29 May.
In describing the reason behind signing up to the code, Adam Evans, Director of Anywise Consulting said:
"We aim to lead by example to all of our suppliers and clients that establishing fair payment terms and predictable cashflow for our suppliers, we can ensure its endurance as we continue to grow and deliver our business. It is only with the support, responsiveness and flexibility of our suppliers that we are able to deliver the projects that we take on."
"We offer highly responsive support to our clients and it is only right that we reward the same levels of responsiveness in our suppliers by paying them on time"
Anywise will now commence negotiations with suppliers to adopt the same principles.
