Late Payment

I have a Customer who habitually pays late or not at all.  Like most SME,s  I have to put up with it because  Customers  are harder to find,  despite the slight upturn it will be along time before we can insist on 30 days and charge interest from that day. They know this and we Bank roll their business for up to 3 months.   Fining late payers as well as charging them Interest would probably help.  We have to pay our Suppliers on time and end up Overdrawn as a result.
