Late Payment Interest Rate Increases for Fiscal 2018

The interest rate the state pays on a late payment due to a vendor under the state’s prompt payment law will be 5.25 percent for fiscal 2018. The interest calculation is one percentage point higher than the prime rate published in the Wall Street Journal on the first business day of July.

For more information, see Interest Rate on eXpendit (FPP I.005).
