The firm’s findings also highlighted the impact of COVID-19, with the number of invoices sent by freelancers and SMEs falling by 33% during the lockdown. FreeAgent’s CEO Ed Molyneux has called for new legislation and stiffer penalties for late-paying firms, with the problem remaining one of the most widespread and damaging concerns facing small firms.
