The Spanish Late Payment Act (Ley 3/2004, de 29 de diciembre, de medidas de lucha contra la morosidad en las operaciones comerciales) has been recently modified by Act 15/2010. The new legal regime imposes mandatory payment terms that have to be observed by the parties engaged in a commercial contract. The paper analyzes the problems derived from the new regulation in contracts between private parties.
