Past Due Again

Filed under Blog

Every business owner knows what it’s like to have past due accounts. Over the years, I have witnessed scores of business owners who are reluctant to collect money from clients for fear of losing the customer. Nothing can be further from the truth. Still it remains that many customers play this hand to the point where it frustrates you.

Are some of your clients holding out. Do they use the upper hand because they know you depend on them for future business? This is all too common. Break the cycle and get paid. Your approach is vital and determines the outcome of the game being played. The fact is, you can set the tone of the business relationship. How do you approach clients who don’t pay?  There are ways around their procrastination that will set a sense of urgency. When people owe you money, it can be a daunting task to collect those funds and it costs more time and money out of your pocket chasing them down. This can take the fun out of owning your own company. Some customer’s are late every month while others take months to pay. What can you do the prevent people from continuing down the road of past due? There are a number of techniques you can use to get paid faster. 

How do you approach the customer who pays late every month? Send out another invoice, call the client or allow them to build up a balance hoping they will eventually pay. All of these efforts are slow and not very effective. Learn to take a more pro-active approach so you can break the bad habits of poor paying customers. Your approach will directly affect your bottom line, increase revenue and make running a business more enjoyable.
