European Industry White Paper Report 2018

Intrum has compiled data from 9,607 companies across Europe to produce this Payment Industry White Paper, which examines payment behaviour and the financial situations of businesses around Europe.

The report includes a sectorial overview, highlighting the key findings on the European level. In addition, the report includes a national analysis from the perspective of selected business sectors in each country represented in the report. The survey was originally used to produce the European Payment report of 2018, which analyses payment behaviour from a geographical
perspective.

This report provides valuable insights into the impact of late and non-payment on European economies and business sectors. The findings in the report show that payment habits have varying impacts on different economies and industries. Although several surveyed sectors and countries indicate a positive trend, this report shows that late payments are still producing severe negative effects on companies.
