I have picked up 4 accounts so far this year for sole reason that the customer is looking for consitant billing. I have people telling me they are getting bills in January and even 1 February for services performed in Oct and Nov of last season? I can't believe what I'm hearing from my new customers. I understand there complaint w/ closing out 04 books for taxes and property and income taxes being due soon. Why would anybody in our industry bill right along all year till the last invoice and then wait over 2 months to mail it to the customer? I don't mean to offend if you do this , but please explain to me why? Personally I want my money in my pocket as fast as possible?
