Top 5 excuses for late payments

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”
