Document Summary

First Payment Reminder Notice is a follow-up communication after an invoice has been sent but no payment is received. It is a commercial document and a part of the debt collection process. Payment Request Letters are the first step if a customer is slow-paying invoices or refusing to pay an invoice.


The First Payment Reminder Notice is used to highlight the late payment, the amount outstanding, and the invoice(s) in respect of the amount. It requests payment by return or pending payment correspondence to explain the delay.

If the outstanding amount represents more than one invoice, it is recommended to attach a statement of accounts with the notice so that the outstanding balance can be clearly substantiated. If the debt is not paid, a second notice should be sent as a final reminder, and it usually includes a stronger language.
