Letter before action for an outstanding invoice

About this service

This is a final 'letter before action', demanding payment for an overdue invoice(s). In this letter you threaten court action if you don't get a response within 14 days.

This letter calculates the total outstanding debt, including, in some cases, any interest due on the overdue amounts.

Use this document only if you have sent invoices (one or more) to a person or organisation for goods supplied or services performed and those invoices remain overdue for payment. Ideally you will have sent at least one previous letter of demand - if you have, you can use it regardless of how they responded except where they have disputed your claim for payment.

This letter is suitable for use where the goods were delivered or services were performed within the UK.
