New Year, New Trends – Credit Report Jan Month-End

March 5, 2024

What does the New Year Signal – Open our monthly Market Insights Report based on 31 January data to find out!

Each year we see seasonal peaks in 60 and 90 day payment arrears over the December / January period while customers are closed down / on leave and ‘miss’ payments.

Our in-depth trade data is showing a marked increase in the January 60 and 90-day arrears, but more importantly above previous year’s levels. February and March data will give a clearer view of the trend as we head into 2024. Comments from our clients indicate that they are having to push harder for payment in some industry segments, and this shows in the Days Sales Outstandings by industry data.
