The average payment period of the Nerja City Council to businessmen and professionals has been reduced to 20.31 days in the fourth quarter of the year, according to a report issued by the Municipal Treasurer, thereby recovering the trust of the suppliers in the administration, and the budget stability regulations are again complied with, avoiding penalties, increasing the cost of invoicing due to interest accrual, the inability to use the remaining treasury for investments and to take advantage of State measures to favor the liquidity of the entities local.
In the six months elapsed since the beginning of the current municipal government's mandate, this average term has been reduced by more than half. In the second quarter of 2019, when the previous tripartite government group ended its mandate, it amounted to 41.40 days, breaking the legal maximum provided in 30 days. This breach remained virtually uninterrupted during the previous four years, while in June 2015, when he began his term, it was established in just 11.49 days.
The mayor of Nerja, José Alberto Armijo, has shown his satisfaction for the fulfillment of his electoral commitment in such a short space of time. ?We have taken a full turn to the policy related to municipal obligations regarding invoices for services, works and supplies provided by professionals and entrepreneurs. We will strive to continue reducing payment terms to suppliers, not only to comply with the Law, which is essential, but also to improve the trust of suppliers in the City of Nerja, and for the municipality to benefit from the advantages that this compliance entails. ?
