Operative part of the judgment

The concept of ‘commercial transaction’ within the meaning of Article 2(1) of Directive 2011/7/EU of the European Parliament and of the Council of 16 February 2011 on combating late payment in commercial transactions must be interpreted as meaning that it does not cover the collection, by a public authority, of a payment due as remuneration for the perpetual usufruct of a plot of land from an undertaking of which that public authority is the creditor.
