Small businesses are being dented by late payments which can cause vast cash flow problems, around half of Irish SME’s have a waiting period of 3 months to get paid. Since cash flow issues are becoming more common in the economic climate E invoicing is getting more popular since invoice delivery is minutes instead of days.
