Strategies for getting invoices paid on time

As a Florida business owner, you may understand all too well that there are few things more frustrating than sending out invoices for work you already performed only to have those invoices go ignored. Regrettably, this happens quite frequently across the state and nation, and sometimes, it can prove extremely difficult to recover what clients owe you without pursuing legal action. At CreditCollections, A Law Firm, we recognize that there are certain strategies business owners can employ that may help increase the chances that clients will pay up on time, and we have helped many clients facing similar circumstances take steps to make sure they get paid.

According to Forbes, one step you might want to take to increase the likelihood that your business clients will pay on time is to set clear expectations in writing from the outset. Before you begin performing any work on behalf of a client, set clear terms regarding payment turn times and how you expect that client to pay your bill.

Typically, when a client has an agreement in writing that dictates that he or she must pay in a particular manner, and within a particular timeframe, he or she will be more likely to take the agreement seriously and abide by its terms. Furthermore, it can often benefit you to make it as easy as possible for your clients to pay invoices, and you can do this by consistently sending those invoices at the same time every month. If you are still mailing paper invoices, make the switch to electronic ones to speed up the process and make it even easier for your clients to pay up.

In situations where clients still fail to pay you on time, consider simply withholding work until you receive what your client owes you. While some business owners fear that this could damage the relationship with the client, a client who does not pay is a client you probably do not want in the first place. You can find out more about what to do when clients fail to pay you for work performed on our webpage.
