Assuming your clients are on net-30 terms, the following is a very broad approach to managing your Account Receivables:

  • 30 days - Send your customer a reminder notice.
  • 45 days - Make a phone call and find out why the invoice is still outstanding. Uncover and eliminate any potential disputes.
  • 60 days - Send a collection demand and follow up with a phone call. Place customer on credit hold.
  • 75 days - Make a phone call to determine if your customer has any intention of paying the balance due.
  • 90 days - Make a final phone call and send a final ten day demand letter. Call Manning, Price & Stern (800-575-9701) to find out if this client is currently placed for collections. Why not, it’s free!
  • Day 100 - Place customer for collection with Manning, Price & Stern and we will take immediate action. Remember, chances are if they owe you money, the customer owes several other vendors as well. Make yourself a priority and be the first one in line to get paid.
