The NSW Government has committed to faster payments. Payments up to $10,000 will now be paid instantly by credit card. Registered small businesses that supply to in-scope government departments will also be paid within 20 calendar days of central payment departments receiving a correctly rendered invoice for goods or services provided for between $10,000 and $1 million. Faster payments have been in place since the 1st December 2018.
