Collection prior due date
This recovery action made before the due date has many advantages due to its precocity in the invoice collection. This is the first necessary step to be paid by your client. It allows:
- To obtain a promise of payment for the due date of the invoice by a given mean of payment. If payment is not made at the promised date you can remind your client's previously commitment and require immediate payment,
- To check that your client has your correct bank details and address in case he will send a check or a promissory note,
- To make sure that invoices are validated by the customer or identify any claim on your invoices. If it’s the case, you will have time to solve the problem (error on the invoice, failing hardware or bill not received ... etc) and finally being paid to the due date which would not been the case if you start invoices collection after their due date,
- To educate your client on the seriousness of your collection management.
