Don’t let people get away with not paying you!
Letters of Demand are quick and easy to do-it-yourself – and due to their formal nature they get results, without having to lodge a claim in Court.
Remember, debt collection agencies are expensive and they won’t chase small debts. And lawyers are very expensive and might be the wrong way to handle a customer.
‘Hard’ and ‘Soft’ versions of the template
The first template is a ‘Hard’ version of the Letter of Demand. Use this version if you want to enforce your payment and make a Final Demand to be paid within a specified number of days. No negotiation.
The second template is a ‘Soft’ version of the Letter of Demand. Use this version if you believe there is still an opportunity to negotiate your payment and you want to maintain a good relationship with the debtor.

Is the Letter of Demand template right for me?
Then you need a Letter of Demand. It is a formal request to get an outstanding debt paid, with the threat of taking court action if you are not paid.
I don’t want to cause a scene …
We totally understand. That’s why there are 2 versions of the Letter of Demand template – a ‘hard’ and a ‘soft’ version. When you want to tread carefully and preserve your customer relationship, use the ‘soft’ version.
The Statute of Limitations on collecting a debt is 6 years from the date the debt is incurred. So you have up to 6 years to chase up a debt with a Letter of Demand – but please, don’t leave it that long!
I’ve lost my documentation …
Then you need to provide as much proof as possible to substantiate your claim – copies of emails, affidavits from third party witnesses, etc.
