at the bottom of my invoices it states that any payment over 30 days is subjuct to a 15% charge, i generally never have a late payment, but before i had it on there i was always tracking people down..

Are you still performing services? Please tell me you have a contract on this job. Have a lawyer draft a demand for payment letter. How much are we talking about?:usflag:

I have found that emailing works better than hand delivering.

Payment schedule, late fees, service suspension, ect.... All should have been put in a contract and signed by both parties involved before any work was performed. Now its slow, over haul your contracts and business sense.

Wow you let that go way too long. At the end of the year I still had a few people owe me money for cleanups and mowing in October and November. I made a simple collection letter based on one I found online. I sent them as a certified letter and received all my payments within 2 weeks. Worth the $15 in postage and now I don't have to think about it anymore.

Better check with your states laws pertaining to this subject as well. It is illegal to just pull a number out of the air and charge them a late fee.

Here you can only charge 18% per year or 1.5% per month late fee, but you can add collection fees and court costs.

Where would you find this? I don't even know how to search for it.

Try your states business website. They are usually good sources of everything from licensing to consumer laws.
