Zarski v Stadnicki

European Union – Late payments. The Court of Justice of the European Union gave a preliminary ruling, deciding that art 12(4) of Directive (EU) 2011/7 of the European Parliament and of the Council had to be interpreted as meaning that the member states might exclude from the scope of that directive late payments in the performance of a contract concluded before 16 March 2013, even where those late payments occurred after that date.
