If you have a client who’s habitually paying you late, it can be incredibly frustrating. But there are a few ways to mitigate the problem and get them back on track.
First, try billing twice per month or upfront instead of monthly. The former option will get them on a firm schedule and prevent getting backed up, while the latter will eliminate the problem altogether.
Also, try getting in touch with a contact in accounts payable. That way you can cut out the middleman and streamline the process.
Finally, make sure to send follow-up e-mails along with any invoice you send out. Pester them enough and they’ll get the picture. SmallBizTrends.com, 6/20/2018
