European Payment Report

Intrum Justitia European Payment Report

Report about payment behavior and risks in Europe

The European Payment Report 2015 is based on a survey that was conducted simultaneously in 29 European countries between February and April 2015. In this report we gathered data from thousands of companies across Europe to gain insight into the payment behavior and financial health of European businesses.

Through this comprehensive survey among European companies, we generate awareness and debate among politicians and the media, for example, how late or non-payments impact the economies of the EU. We participate in seminars and meetings in Brussels to inform EU delegates of the situation and the best approaches in working for a sound economy and secure payments in Europe.

In 2015, we will distribute more than 8,000 reports containing data based on the survey.
