I'm looking for advice from those of you whose clients pay by standing order (or direct debit for that matter).
So far my clients have paid when I raise an invoice but for a more even cash flow and less chasing of clients for amounts outstanding, I decided that now is the time to move clients onto paying by standing orders.
I have already considered direct debits but the cost is the problem in that case.
So how do I go about it?
Do I just contact my larger clients or would every client be happy to pay monthly?
I was going to write to my clients and enclose a standing order mandate for completion but what about terms and conditions, are there any templates out there that I could use?
Any advice would be much appreciated.
