Need help with a final reminder?
In the last reminder for collection, we ensure that you can indicate to your customer that you think it is very important that the invoice is paid anyway. The payment has probably been delayed for a while, making it worth putting some extra pressure on it. This can be sent by registered mail on our stationery and with our logo, so that you can make a little more impression.
What is a final reminder?
The meaning of the final notice is as follows: A final notice is a formal request or warning to someone to fulfill an outstanding obligation, such as paying an invoice or fulfilling an agreement, that has not yet been fulfilled.
It is often a written notice ( final demand letter ) sent as a reminder that a payment or other obligation is outstanding and action will be taken if the payment or obligation is not met within a specified period.
The reminder can usually be the first step in a process where steps are taken to enforce an obligation, such as calling in a collection agency .
What are the demands?
Your reminder that we send for you meets the important legal requirements:
- We mention the payment term of 14 days
- We state the exact amount of collection costs that we calculate afterwards
Please note : the legal requirements apply to final reminders to consumers. These obligations do not apply to companies. We advise to keep the process short for companies with reminders and reminders. One payment reminder and one reminder is sufficient to proceed to a collection process.

Why do we send a Registered E-mail™ and no longer a registered letter of formal notice?
