Pay It, Don't Delay It

The ‘Pay It, Don’t Delay It’ initiative aims to help make late payments a thing of the past by rewarding good paying behaviour.

Late payments are a big deal for almost half of small businesses

Running a business can be tough

And what makes things tougher is that almost 50% of Aussie small businesses invoices are paid late*, which can have a detrimental impact.

Late payments cause cash flow stress

When small businesses are paid late, it limits their ability to invest, grow and employ staff.


Our mission to end late payments

Xero's ‘Pay It, Don’t Delay It’ push rewarded good paying behaviour as well as helped tie over small businesses waiting on payments.
