EOS Survey 'European Payment Practices' 2017

The EOS Group survey ‘European Payment Practices’ analyses the relationships between payment behaviour, payment terms and the influence of cash flows on Europe’s economy and society.

On behalf of EOS, in the spring of 2017 the independent market research institute Kantar TNS once again surveyed experts in European countries regarding local payment practices. The survey is unique not only with respect to quantity – 3,200 companies in 16 European countries – but also with regard to the B2B focus. The opinions of experts in receivables management in companies with on average 28 million euros annual revenues and 180 employees are analysed.

200 companies in Great Britain, Spain, France, Austria, Greece, Romania, Russia, Slovakia, Bulgaria, Poland, Hungary, Croatia and Belgium, Switzerland, the Czech Republic and Germany responded to questions about their own payment experiences, the country’s economic development and the topics of risk and receivables management.
