Find and Compare Statistics on industry invoice pay performance. 


Our Industry Analytics presents data on how each of the Major UK Industries perform.


Since 2017 the government body Companies House has been collecting invoice payment reports from businesses across the UK. Using these reports, we have collected and compiled data on the payment behaviours of individual industrial sectors.

The industrial sectors used in this analysis are defined by Companies House’s condensed list of Standard Industrial Classification (SIC) codes. A comprehensive breakdown of each sector can be found here.

Industry Search Tool

Use our cool search tool to find the top 10 and worst 10 Invoice payers per each Industry sector in the United Kingdom. The percentage score shows the rate of invoices paid beyond initial agreed terms. A higher percentage score shows a higher proportion of invoices being paid late whilst the lower percentage score shows few, if any invoices being paid beyond terms.
