Greetings.
Can you inform me on the usual payment terms in Sweden? (e.g. net 30, 60 or other)
I have done a job for a swedish company but haven't agreed on payment terms. My invoice was issued on 02.Oct.03 and I haven't received any money yet. Is this normal?
I have checked for this agency and up until now no one has had any payment problem with them. But I am a little worried...
Any help would be appreciated.
Dimitra

I do a lot of stuff for Swedish agencies. They are mostly very reliable, honest and courteous. Payment terms is about two months - like in the UK often. They often insist on basing the invoice on the SL count, though, which is bothersome when it comes to my particular language pair.

It'll be OK

is the norm in Sweden for all trades unless otherwise stipulated. It also conforms with recent EU rules.

Then there are always companies/individuals that do not conform.
Reasons:
Lack of administrative order
Late paying clients
To pay late is to earn interest (but reaping badwill)

Best method: Make a personal courteous phone call: "It is a mistake, isn't it, that this due invoice has not beem paid, eh....."
