Business Forms: Final Payment Reminder

Composing a Final Payment Reminder

The Final Payment Reminder letter (exc. CDA Interest) follows up the first late payment reminder. It requests payment by return or a written proposal to clear the debt. In the event of either of these two options not occurring the letter informs the debtor that the company may be obliged to take legal action.

Updated and co-ordinated records are essential to effective debt collection. An audit trail of credit related documents will facilitate prompt payment as well as establishing the indebtedness in the event of late or disputed payments and any subsequent legal action.

A number of template agreements are available to document a proposal to settle the debt, and, failing any agreed proposal, a “letter before action” sent to the debtor at the end of the grace period mentioned in this letter.

This Final Payment Reminder template is in open format. Either enter the requisite details in the highlighted fields or adjust the wording to suit your purposes.
