Late Payment Letters

Please Note: We have a statutory right under the Late Payment of Commercial Debts Regulations 2013 to add interest and late payment compensation to the sum outstanding. This currently equates to £40.00 late payment compensation fee and statutory interest of 8% above the Bank of England base rate (fixed for the six month period within which date the invoice became overdue).
