I've always billed monthly with Quickbooks for maintenance services at the beginning of the month following the month that services were performed, on a Net 15 day basis. If I do a significant amount of extras I will sometimes send a bill out for all services performed up to including those extras. One-time customers are treated differently...generally half due before I'll even schedule it and half at completion. I have recently changed things a little and started sending out invoices after the last cut of the billing period, especially for my bi-weekly accounts. I don't want to be bothered trying to collect with each service and have to deal with the additional administrative work. I like the idea of advance billing but I don't always know what the charge will be for any given month. I did try billing all accounts "due on receipt" one year and that actually slowed payment.
