European Payment Index


Report about payment behavior and risks in Europe

Each year we carry out a written survey in more than 31 European countries involving several thousand companies. The results of the survey are published in the European Payment Index Report and the country reports, which are drafted in the respective national language and contain more in depth details.

The yearly interval is intended to capture and compare international trends and provide companies with a reliable basis for decision making and effective benchmarks.

The European Payment Index 2014 is the 10th edition, the first report was issued in 1998 in cooperation with a workgroup of the European Commission, although with a limited amount of European countries. In 2004 the first report with the majority of European countries was published.
