In early 2015, Polarising established what it takes for itself as an unswerving rule from day one of its existence: absolute compliance with payment deadlines made to any and all persons or entities with which it collaborates.
So, when Compromisso Pagamento Pontual was established Polarising became members and proudly use the seal of the program on all communication channels, which we now renew as member of the Commitment to Prompt Payment to Suppliers and as an active part of this movement of social responsibility that promotes a culture of payment on time and enhances the competitiveness of the Portuguese economy.
We intend to counter the frightening figures and the unpredictable consequences that non-compliance with payment deadlines entail for the global economy. According to European Union data, 25% of bankruptcies are in European companies and recent data from Informa DB states that 84% of Portuguese companies do not meet their payment deadlines.
Also, the unemployment it causes and the unfair competition it creates, as companies that pay late penalize those that honor their commitments. This is becoming a serious threat to their survival and the culture of permissiveness and irresponsibility in the Portuguese economy seems to be deeply rooted as a cultural factor that has to be countered, or else many small and medium sized companies will succumb.
Join Compromisso Pagamento Pontual and be part of this movement.
