Late payment administrative procedure Mar 7, 2002

Dear Sugeng,



Firstly, it depends on how late the payment is, and also what kind of arrangement you made in the first place.



My experience over the Internet is that the rate paid per word is stated in the advert, however when it will be paid is not mentioned. It is up to you to send out your own invoice by post as fast as possible after completion of the work, and write at the bottom of the invoice \"Payment should be made within 30 days to...(Give bank details).



30 days is reasonable. To me, however, this means that I allow an extra three days after expiry of the 30-day period, as the client is allowed to initiate the bank transfer on the 30th day.



I wait 5-7 days after expiry of the 33-day period, and then fax the bill through to the client with the word \"Reminder\" or the words \"Friendly Reminder\" stamped or written on it.



7 days later, if the bill has still not been paid, I do the same again.



7 further days later, repeat the procedure, if necessary.



After this, threaten legal action.
