Dear Mr Smith,

Records indicate that we have now tried every reasonable way to have this account settled without having to resort to policy.

If/when this becomes necessary when next reviewing your account additional costs will be incurred which may ultimately become payable by yourself should our claim against you be successful.

Settlement of this matter is now a matter of principle. Be advised that if this account is not settled by 2.00pm of Thursday, 02 May it will be referred to another party to recover payment and the additional costs on our behalf.
Why it works …
* it blames ‘records’ for having to get ‘heavy’
* it advises that you may have to ‘resort to policy’ (even if you haven’t GOT a policy!)
* it suggests that the debtor MAY have to pay more if he doesn’t pay now
* it’s very time-specific
* it’s now become ‘a matter of principle’
* it doesn’t say ‘lawyers’, uses the vague term ‘another party’.

About the Author:

Have you ever wondered why a client does business with you and then ignores your invoice like they had no intention of paying it in the first place or they treat you like their own personal line of credit, leaving YOU dangling, waiting months for their payment? Unfortunately this situation is all too common and can even be puzzling for the most experienced business owner. If you’ve ever had to handle outstanding accounts or you are just so over non-payers, then we can help. Real-world skills, solutions, tips & strategies to get more accounts paid on time, and, most importantly, how to maintain customer goodwill while keeping YOUR cash flow in the positive. You will find the blog posts helpful but to get real results, contact us by using any of the forms on this site, by email or by phone. I’ve been involved in the management of accounts for over 30 years, heard every excuse in the book, can spot a non-payer at 20 paces. Finance Companies in the 70s (systematic, tough), professional firms in the 80s (no systems, too gentle) and, since then, just about every other sort of business you can think of. I’ve written books on the topic, spoken all over the place about it and the blog in this website is my way of “giving back”. I hope you find it helpful.
