VAT pro-forma poser

We have a client who pays on pro-forma due to his bad payment history. He paid us upfront by BACS the net amount but has not paid the VAT on the invoice we subsequently issued him. He is proving very elusive. He is planning to use us again in the summer and hence we will of course insist on payment of the old VAT + new invoice + new VAT all up front this time. However, if he doesn't use us we'll envoke our watertight case to sue him but I don't want to incur legal costs unless I really have to.
Does anyone out there know of any accounting tricks to get this money back quickly? Our year-end is 31 March. I will not be providing for this debt due to our strong legal position.
