Bank details on Invoice

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.

Bank details

I do it on all invoices and never had a problem.

Putting your bank details on an invoice exposes no more information than if you give someone a cheque - every cheque you give out has your full bank details as well as your signature...

Yes without doubt

I have recently been made redundant (boo...hooo) fromn a charity. while there..

I would never pay an invoice other than by BACS..


Bacs transfers = free

Cheques = 0.65p each plus bank recs, lost in post etc

Do it. encorage it. Just make sure when you press the send button, it's to the right payee...:)
