Are you not being paid by someone or a client? We’ve put a list of ‘excuses’ that most companies use when you chase them for payment!
1. We can’t pay you until we get paid!
“We are still waiting for payment from contractors/suppliers to make payment before we can pay you”
2. We sent you a cheque!
“We sent you a cheque on Friday, wait a week and if it does not arrive we will send a replacement”
3. Let’s raise a spurious dispute!
“We cannot pay the invoice there is a dispute on the account”
4. What invoice!
“You have not sent us an invoice”
5. The invoice is incorrect!
“There is a mistake on the invoice so we cannot pay it”
