Before sending a Letter of Demand it is important that you have already approached the debtor to remind them to repay the debt. Often one or two friendly “late payment” reminder letters should be sent first. You could also try contacting the debtor via phone or email to remind them of the debt. Remember that a Letter of Demand is the final step you take before commencing legal action, so sending reminders first may help you preserve your relationship with the debtor.
A Letter of Demand will be more successful, and useful for commencing legal action if it is supported by relevant documents. So, ensure you have access to documents such as tax invoices or contracts to prove the existence of the debt before creating a Letter of Demand.
Having a good set of terms and conditions which clearly sets out your payment terms also helps to ensure that you get paid on time.
