Question Invoices


Nov 4, 2009
Hi All,

Anyone know the in's and out's of a correctly issued invoice?

I received a letter and invoice from a buildings maintenance firm with a due date of payment 43 days before I received the invoice. I hadn't noticed the due date when I first saw the invoice (which I obviously held back from telling them on my letter), and now they are trying to ask me to pay an admin charge of 134% of the initial amount requested for late payment.

There were other things I cited in the letter such as the absence of anything stating how steep their Admin Charges were, plus a piece of text in their Admin Charges section that said something along the lines of "you are liable to these charges to the extent they are reasonable".

I guess I'm trying to figure out if I can get this charge overturned on grounds of their invoice being massively late plus the lack of clarity in their rules.

Also, do I have the right to request a full breakdown of their admin charges before I pay it? I'm sure I recall that this term is often seen as rather poor form to the official bodies out there?

Any advice would be much appreciated! Thanks!
