Dear Mr. /Mrs,

As discussed previously over the phone, I am writing to inform you that the invoice, with {{#}} {{INVOICE NUMBER}} is past due. The total amount owing is {{$}} {{AMOUNT}}. This amount relates to {{DESCRIBE SERVICES}} that I provided by agreement with you for {{##}} hours each month in the months of January, February and March 2017. I refer you to the attached invoice dated {{DATE}} that was due for payment by {{DATE}}. I ask that you pay the entire outstanding amount by {{DATE}}. We would like to extend a final opportunity for you, to avoid an escalation of this matter. Accordingly, please remit full payment before the mentioned deadline in this letter. However, your failure to pay this amount will force me to escalate the matter. If payment is not received on time, I will start legal action against you to recover the debt without further notice. Legal costs and interest will be added to the debt.

Yours sincerely,
