Collection letters second reminder

Collection processes are basically at the discretion of the business. You need to have a policy in place regarding collections, because the problems of unpaid accounts are a natural business risk, and often expensive.

The second reminder letter is usually an interim measure prior to actual recovery of amounts due.

It's also a second chance for the client, who may have difficulty paying, which is another consideration in collection processes. You may wish to add a clause about scheduling payments, or other payment options.

This example relates to an undisputed payment.
