    I have just received an email from a client saying that the reason I havn't received a cheque for a website yet is because their accountant has been away on holiday for a week and a half but will be back Tuesday.

    The issue here is that they have spent their 30 days in lue as of the 25th of July 2011 and I still havn't been paid yet. What do you suggest I do. Wait until the Tuesday next week to get cheque or to charge them with late delays, also what sorta late delay prices should I charge them if that was the case... I work in GBP so would be help for converted.

    Thanks

    2% for anything over 10 days late, 5% for anything over 20 days late, 7% for anything over 30 days late.
    45 days, the site gets re-routed to a holding page stating the site is temporarily down because the account is past due.

    I have never had to re-route a site, but all of my clients sign a contract before I start work and understand and and have agreed to the late fee schedule stated above. Most of my clients are yearly contracts so it's not really an issue. For those that are monthly, e-bills reminding them of the late fees usually keep them from being late.

    Id do exactly this.. its not your business whether the clients accountant is away on sick off or vacation! They have a contract with you so they need to pay.. and they also have to pay the penalties for delaying.. do you think they would be understanding if your services went down and your reason was because your IT technician was getting married???
