The PMcM describes as “unfair” the article 8 of the new RD on payment of pending bills
2 March 2012
The Platform Multisectorial against the Morosidad (PMcM
), impulsora of the Law 15/2010 of Fight against the Morosidad in the Commercial Operations, although it has valued very positively the celerity and the commitment of the Government for saldar the historical debt of the Local Administrations to providers and that at last this go to be quantified, has described as “unfair the article 8 on mechanisms of financials (of the Royal decree-law 4/2012, approved the Saturday 24 February), by which will prioritise the payment of the debts of the Local Administrations to the providers that more discount offer on the amount of the main of the pending obligation of payment”.
In this sense, Antoni Cañete, spokesman of the PMcM, has signalled that it is “worrisome that the criterion of payment incite to a species of auction of discounts by part of the providers on the amount of the bills that owe them the AA LL to try earn before. This can cause, for example, that some companies, desperately, accept a reckless drop of the amount by his imperiosa need to earn”.
The PMcM also has explained that the set up of this measure “will create a perverse dynamics that will affect of different way to the providers according to his sector of activity, since it is not the same the structure of costs of a company of services that of an industrial company, by what, companies and sectors that have greater margins will be those that have more privileges to earn his pending bills”. Likewise, “we fear that this mechanism can use later like coin of change so that the payments derived of the public contracting use also of perverse form with subcontract them”, ensures.
