once you start a consistant schedule of payment for people it can cause questions if it varies by a day or two
It can cause more than just questions to a business. If a payment is normally reliable, the expected date may be used to plan cash flow - eg: scheduling standing payments or planning to pay one's own suppliers. Unexpected variations can result in a disruption to cash flow, possibly causing the business to go over their overdraft limit or default on a payment because of a timing problem
Large businesses tend not to be aware of such sensitivity to minor variations in timing. Such cash flow issues tend to affect smaller businesses who are either living hand to mouth, or investing heavily in order to grow.
