Portugal is the second worst payer

The European Payment Report 2018, released by the pan-European credit management firm Intrum, has found that Portugal is the second worst country for public sector payments.

The report, which surveyed close to 10,000 businesses across Europe, said the state takes an average of 86 days to settle debts.

This is only topped by the Italian state, which takes 104 to pay.

The average of the 29 countries surveyed found that it takes European government 40 days on average to finalise payments, while the private sector pays in 34 days.
