Formal Demand for Payment (MT)


This formal demand for payment letter can be used when a customer continues to withhold payments due for goods or services. The letter can be customized for situations where the customer was sent an invoice, an agreement was signed, or if there was nothing in writing.

This formal demand for payment will clearly state that their immediate attention is needed and that if they don't pay then you will take legal action. If the payment is only a little overdue or you just want to send a reminder to the customer, our more conciliatory past due notice template may be more appropriate instead of this formal demand for payment. Both letters may be useful as evidence if you need to pursue a collection action for this payment later on. If you want to start a collection action, you should consult an attorney or collection agent as many states have specific requirements on how to proceed.
