late payer wants to see my terms and conditions

6 years 2 months ago #1875 by gcplumbing@live.co.uk
I have a consistent late payer and I need advice. I worked for them for 18 months and they constantly pay late I have to send reminders all the time. Eventually I had enough and sent 4 updated invoices that were late with £40 charges on each one, they paid me but without the charges saying they haven't seen my terms and conditions, I now feel obliged to go back over the 18 months and charge £40 per late invoice. Can I do this? and what is the best way to go about it? Should I have given them terms and conditions? There was no contract between us and looking back at some of the invoices I never stipulated any payment terms, on most I put please pay within 30 days but that is all and was ignored, also the actual invoice doesn't have there name on it, I have proof I e-mailed them to them and also have bank account info with their names on paying late, can I charge them for every late invoice? please help

Hi GC Plumbing,

I have replied to your other post regarding the late payment charges.

Yes you can charge late payment compensation and interest for each invoice was paid late. These charges are based on the law and are not reliant on your own terms and conditions.

Each invoice should have been dated and properly addressed to them though.

You will need to know the date of each invoice, it's due date and the date each invoice was actually paid to substantiate your claim.
