So is it just my customers or are there others out there that have to wait until the last possible day for their customers to send in payments?

My customers get 15 days to pay up, I sent the bills out a few days early this month but still allow them till Dec 15 to pay. I figured its christmas season, they're going to be blowing money left and right, the 300/400/500 dollar bills for leaf removal are going to be shoved aside until their due date. Customers that had small bills (a few don't get leaves done or had only 2 cuts) have already paid, I'm still waiting for everyone thats over $150.

Oh well, 3 more days :eek:

no problems really at all, if anything I am getting calls asking where is my bill because I took so long to get the final ones out and they came back in like 4 days....I have one bad customer (commercial) who I talk to from time to time and still owes $4k, but should be all set soon

I always notice as the season winds down my customers start paying later and later. I have around $2000 recievable.

I have experienced this for the last 3 years with my customers. I always pay my bills on time, but something about Christmas and personal property taxes drives me to pay as close to that date as possible so I sort of see where they are coming from. However, we should not be treated as the stepchild of bills when it comes to paying them.
