  • Slow payments are costing GC's nearly $64 billion dollars a year, a increase of over $24 billion since 2018.

  • 51 days is the average payment turnaround

  • GC's and Subs will not bid on work with owners that have reputations for delaying payments

  • 72% of GC's say that they would offer a 1 to 5% discount for quicker payments (remember to ask this of your GC and all Sub's on your next project and get in the contract terms!)

  • GC's are understanding the value of paying their subcontractors quickly due to a busy construction market; with 75% of the GC's surveyed paying multiple times per month.

Mural of the story: Everyone likes to be paid on time and it saves all of us money in the end.
