How to get your invoices paid on time
Unfortunately, sending your customers professional-looking invoices is only half the battle. To make sure you’re paid on time, you’ll need to follow up with payment reminders.
You should start sending payment reminders to customers seven days before payment is due. For best results, click here to access our free payment reminder email templates.
If your invoice becomes overdue, you are legally allowed to charge your customers late fees in line with the Bank of England’s interest rates. Click here to read our full article on what to do when an invoice becomes overdue.
