I’m pretty sure we’ve all been there. You’ve had to chase clients who literally just won’t pay what they’re owe, you’ve sent reminder after reminder with no luck.
This is pretty gutting for any business, but as a small business owner, it can be even worse…
Maybe it’s time to make sure your contracts are super robust when it comes to dealing with this kind of situation.
Your client contracts should have airtight payment terms in them, setting out how you expect to be paid, when, refund information, what happens in non-payment situations etc.
That way, if you have the take it further, you have the backing of a legally binding, tough contract!
