Further to my letter of {{Date}}, I am disappointed to note that we have still not received payment of the overdue amount on your account. I am writing to advise you that, in accordance with the Terms of Credit Agreement signed by yourselves, I have now passed your account to our Legal Department/Solicitors/Debt Recovery Agents. I have requested them to commence the appropriate legal procedure to recover the debt. They shall contact you within the next few days, and if there is any genuine reason for non-payment, please let them know immediately. Whilst we value your business, you must appreciate that we can no longer trade with you until this matter is resolved, and I confirm that a “stop notice” has been placed on your account and will remain until the outstanding amount is paid. Yours faithfully,
