Most of our clients normally pay by cheque and some pay by standing orders. However many clients now wish to pay by internet transfer or bill payment instead of sending a cheque, which incurs additional charges. Therefore we email them the bank details or inform them over the phone. We are wondering whether we should include bank details on the invoices sent to all clients. Is this a good practice? Do other practitioners recommend this practice? We have seen many companies do this but not certain about inherent risks in disclosing bank details on the invoice. You hear of all these reports about identity theft by disclosing your bank details and you start thinking about it. Has any one had any nasty experiences by disclosing the same on their invoices? We would be more interested to hear your views.
