Everything you need to know about credit payments

This no-nonsense credit control guide will help you develop your business practices to reduce the risk of being paid late, and will also help you chase clients that don’t pay on time.

You’ll learn about payment contracts, what you can put in your terms & conditions, and what you can do to enforce your rights. We’ll also help you understand UK late payment legislation and how to officially begin debt collection procedures. Finally, learn how to spot when your clients are in financial trouble, so you can get out early.

This credit control guide also includes links to some handy late payment letters that you can download, personalise and send to all your tardy clients.
