Last week, I sent an email to an ex-client equesting payment of fees. He reverted saying he would only pay £400 per month when he can afford it. He follow up last week with a number of emails saying his new accountants have found a number of errors plus questioning my abilities. Really did annoy me but I just didn't reply as this person is not rationale. Though my conscious is clear as it was a difficult engagement and client with extreme time pressures. He was very happy until he saw the invoice.
Now do I take him to court which I understand may take a year due to the backlog of cases. Don't think he will defend the case as he said he would pay which I understand makes him liable by law but may try to complain to my accountancy body which he has done with one other previous accountant or wait patiently which may take around six-seven months to clear the debt.
If he decides to complain to my accountancy body will they see through someone who is intent taking revenge or look at the work carried out.
