How to Get Paid on Overdue Invoices


Running your own business is one of the most rewarding things that you can do with your life, but equally one of the hardest. As business owners, we often get stuck having to wear lots of different hats on a daily basis, from taking care of bookkeeping to looking after the sales process. It’s great to gather some experience in a variety of different tasks throughout the business so that you understand what needs to be done, however, in the long run, trying to do everything yourself is counterproductive.

When it comes to the long list of tasks that have to be done daily within a business, some are more enjoyable than others, especially when it comes to chasing overdue invoices in a bid to get them paid. Chasing invoices is one of those duties that no one likes to do, but it’s essential to the running of your business to make sure that you are getting paid and that your accounts are in order.



Tip:  If late payments and overdue invoices are a common practice within your business then you may have to look into your payment process to see if you can implement any changes such as adding a late fee into the contract so that customers will face an additional charge if they are late with their payments.





Thankfully like many other tasks that you can outsource, chasing an overdue invoice is one of
them. Your Virtual Assistant can take care of this for you so that you can focus on getting the work done rather than having to deal with the aftermath.

Do what you do best, and outsource the rest.
— Peter F. Drucker


Your Virtual Assistant can email the company on your behalf. They will explain that they are
enquiring about an overdue invoice to see where it is currently up to and then if needed they will resend the invoice. Like everything else that your Virtual Assistant can do, this will be dealt with in a very professional manner. The best part about this is your Virtual Assistant can send the email from your business email address so that it all looks like it came from in-house.

This will not only free up your time but also save you from what can sometimes be deemed as an embarrassing phone call to a client or customer.
