HAVE AN UNPAID INVOICE?
Failure to pay an invoice you have sent may constitute sufficient grounds for the seizure of the debtor’s property by the bailiff’s office. However, it is important to remember that this applies only to those invoices that have been sent by post. Invoices sent via email may not serve as grounds for the seizure of the debtor’s assets.
If your invoices have been sent by post, the case can be submitted directly to the bailiff’s office requesting seizure of the debtor’s assets. An enforceable document, e. g. a court judgement, is not required in such cases. Meanwhile, if the debtor disputes your money claim, a bailiff must refer the case to a dispute committee.
Follow these steps if you want to collect a past due invoice:
Sample letter: send this warning letter before taking legal action
Amount of debt:
Late payment charge calculated at the rate of ___ % and accumulated until this date (inclusive): ___
The amount claimed is to be paid to the following account number:
This claim will be regarded as paid after both the debt amount and the accrued late charges are paid.
If you want to collect a debt, sometimes sending this warning notice is enough to achieve this end
