I'm a freelancer, and offer 14 day payment terms to my suppliers which they agree to, with the exception of one supplier who I agreed 28 days credit. When they were 2 months late paying, I sent them a very polite final demand letter (I have got a mortgage and bills to pay after all). Imagine my surprise when I got a letter back from them saying how dare I chase them for payment and they were good to their suppliers etc.. basically making out I was at fault. I can't believe it! I did the work and invoiced them in December and it's now March!!! Still, they coughed up but god knows how long I'm going to have to wait to get paid for work I did in February. What's worse, my husband is employed by them, so it's made things super akward.
