At one time I worked for a large UK company that was notoriously slow at
paying its bills.

I used a number of sub-contractors who made it clear that if their bills,
which came in at least monthly, weren't paid promptly then they would stop
work on the contracts.

I would warn the accounts department, who would then pay promptly.
Everybody, except the accountant who established the policy, was happy.

On the other hand, I worked for a short time for a small company that was
slow in paying its bills. It took me over two years after I stopped working
for them to get the money they owed me.

Unless you enjoy being bilked, my advice is summed up by the medieval
saying: "No money. No Swiss [mercenaries]".
