Upset about an unpaid invoice?

You are not alone.

Remember, every business faces this challenge at some point. Stay patient, professional, and persistent if you can.  

Here are 5 tips to support you in getting your invoices paid quicker.

  1. Clear Communication.

Make sure all details in your invoice are accurate and clear. This includes the due date, your payment terms, and the goods/services provided.

  • Early Invoicing.

Send your invoice as soon as possible.  Can you invoice some or all at the outset? If not, can you invoice as soon as the job is completed? The sooner you invoice, the sooner you get paid.

  • Follow Up.

Don’t hesitate to follow up on an unpaid invoice. Politely remind your client about the outstanding payment and the due date.  Paying you may have slipped the net and your client just needs a simple reminder.

  • Payment Options.

Offer multiple payment options, if possible. The easier you make it for your clients to pay, the quicker you get paid.  For example, can you send your client a payment link so they can pay using their mobile phone?

  • Establish a relationship.

Build a good relationship with your client. Clients are more likely to pay on time when they have a positive relationship with you.

We regularly help business owners get late invoices paid, and the best news is, to limit your risk, you can engage us to assist you, paying low fixed fees as you go, or you can hand the entire debt to us for recovery, and if the debt is undisputed, we may be able to offer you a no win no fee.  

Does this sound good to you?

If so, contact us and we can arrange a time that works best for you.
