First of all, Gunter, with all due respect, I think you should have refused to do any further work after the first 3 invoices were overdue.
But now that you've let it go on this long, if you send them a final invoice for the total outstanding amount, I think to be reasonable you would have to give them the same time to pay as you normally would 30 days?). Considering that the last two invoices are not really overdue yet, 3 days seems unreasonable. Your chances of getting paid may be better if you don't push that hard.
DO enter this into the Blue Book.
Good luck, I hope you will get your money.

Good morning everybody,
just a sort question. I have worked for an agency in Belgium and not received any payment.
Six invoices are overdue now, up to 4 months. Two more invoices will become due in about two weeks. Two weeks ago they promised to pay, however, I got nothing.
I want to send the a final demand for payment today, and pass it to a debt collector if they haven't payed within 3 days.
My question now: Is it reasonable to extend this final demand for payment to ALL of my invoices though two of them will only be due in about two weeks?
That would save me going through the whole procedue again in August.
I know from other companies that once your payments are overdue, all outstanding amounts get due immediately.
Would it be alright then if I ask today for payment of all outstanding amounts (around 3000 EU)?
