Do you sell goods or provide services without a contract? Take care of the primary documentation.

A typical situation is when goods or services are delivered / provided to the buyer without a written contract. The parties orally agreed on how much goods, where and at what price to deliver. The supplier has invoiced the buyer, delivered the goods or provided services, but he is not in a hurry to pay.

Many believe that if a written contract is not concluded, you will not receive the funds.
It does not. If you can confirm the verbal agreements, then the debt will be collected. Including in court. But for this you need to follow the minimum formalities:

Ensure the execution of orders for goods in writing (desirable, but not required).
Ask the buyer to send a written application or fill in the application yourself, taking into account the agreement and send it to the buyer for signing.

Issue an invoice.

Get the buyer's signature on the transport and expense invoices, which must contain a link to the account.
Make sure that these documents are signed by an authorized person (director or employee by power of attorney, a copy of which is also take).

If the buyer was provided with services, you need to send a letter asking to pay the debt.

So you will officially declare your claim and if the customer does not pay within 7 days, you will also be able to charge penalties.

From experience we note that when all is well with the documents, the buyer pays on time.

If you want to prepare for the inspection, or you need to appeal the fine of the supervisory authority - leave your number and we will call you.
