Free Past Due Invoice Letter Template

A Past Due Notice is a letter or email that is sent to an individual or a company if their payment is late. The notice’s purpose is to alert a debtor of a late payment and to urge the responsible party to make payment. Borrowers who are past due often incur penalties and may be charged late fees.

A Past Due Invoice Notice is a good approach to remind someone they owe you money and request payment. It communicates to them that you’re serious and it is a serious matter without being rude or disrespectful.

This template is a final reminder letter for outstanding payment of an invoice. For rent arrears, use our Late Rent Notice template.

A Past Due Invoice Letter is often referred to by many other names including:

  • Past Due Invoice Notice
  • Notice to Pay Invoice
  • Failure to Pay Invoice Notice
  • Demand Notice for Nonpayment of Invoice
  • Demand for Payment of Invoice
  • Demand for Late Invoice

What is the difference between past due and overdue?

The term “past due” refers to money that has not been paid in the recent past. The term “overdue” refers to money that has not been paid in a long time. Your account technically becomes past due the moment you miss the payment.

Does a past due notice affect your credit score?

Even a single late or missing payment can have an influence on credit score. However, the simple answer is that late payments will normally not appear on your credit reports for at least 30 days from the day they are missed, although you may still incur late fees for late payments.

How do I write a Past Due Letter?

Anyone can write a Past Due Letter or email to a customer or client. To request payment professionally, be sure to include:

  • Your company name and address
  • Recipient’s name and address
  • The total amount outstanding
  • The original payment due date
  • A brief explanation that no payment has been received
