Debt collection letters for unpaid invoices (Guidance Notes)

This document creates three debt collection letters demanding payment for an overdue invoice(s).

You can use it if you have sent invoices (one or more) to a consumer or business for goods supplied or services performed and those invoices remain overdue for payment.

These letters calculate the total outstanding debt as at the date of each letter, including, in some cases, any interest due on the overdue amounts.

The second and third letters can only be used if you've had no reaction from the debtor in response to the previous letter. The third letter is a final 'letter of claim' (also known as a 'letter before action'), which threatens court action if you don't get a response. This also includes the information sheet, reply form and financial statement form that you need to give to the debtor before you can go to court.

This document is suitable for use where the goods were delivered or services were performed within the UK.

Form N1 - Claim form for debt recovery (Guidance Notes)
Use this document to make an application to county court to recover money owed to you through unpaid invoices. Before making this application, you must have already sent at least two letters to the customer demanding payment of the invoices and threatening to take the matter to court if the invoices are not paid. If you have not done this already, use our 'Debt collection letters for unpaid invoices' document. Please note that this document is only suitable for recovering sums from up to two defendants and can only be used in England & Wales. There is no limit, however, on the amount that can be claimed.
