If not, why not?

It's a public organisation.

yes do it i would, but i wouldnt be expecting to get though, i would also contact anyone else which they buy from and tell them.
#3
Would considering small claims court action not be a better route to take?

i bet you cant do it legally, tho i dont know cos i aint no lawyer. think you may stray into defamation or libel territory. i had a quick scan of this.

Have you asked if they are able to pay you ? sent registered or couriered invoice with a '10 days to pay up or i'll take you to court' on :thumbsup:

If I saw a company slagging another off it would make me wonder if they would do it to me and i'd think twice before dealing with them. i think it's very bad practise to do so :whistling:

I think that it would hurt you more than them.
A company thinking about trading with you may think it would happen to them if an invoice went missing in the post.
#8
if its another company, can't you 'return the favour' and get something off them of same or higher value. small claims is time consuming and not as satisfying as cold hearted revenge:w00t:

A friend of mine had it put on his works van, and changed the spelling to something like *Centre Parks* instead of*CenterParcs*...........he is still driving around with the 'ad' on now. Of course, I am just using this name as an example! Don't know how the law stands on such things but he has had no comeback - or money!!!! :p

I have a small business and only had one instance where someone didnt pay - wasnt a lot - £160 - but was the principle. So as they lived in a very posh apartment at the Glasgow Harbour, I left a final reminder with the concierge (who I know very well) . I didnt put this in an envelope and asked concierge to hand it to Mr X when he came in.

The guy was very embarrassed and knew the concierge had no doubt read it and knows everyone there.....................and I got paid the next day

Its not nice when ur running a small business and someone doesnt pay as it does have an impact

Good luck OP

We have two customers on our 'hit list'. Been ringing one guy's mobile and landline for weeks to try and organise any kind of payment they are able to make. We're not getting nasty but we did them a favour and it's just plain rude.

Probably out of pocket to the tune of £400 between the pair of them.

As stated by someone else. just sent a recorded letter to their premises, with an an invoice and a set time to pay the bill... Tell them if payment isn't made, then you will start legal proceedings. A lot of people will pay up rather than go through a court case

If they don't pay, take them to the small claims court, it will cost them the cost of your invoice, plus the cost of the court fee

That is good advice - but think when ur owed money u just want to try get it back asap and the small claims court can take such a long time - but does stop you from getting into trouble!
