Getting Paid on Time - A Recurring Issue Now for CPAs

January 2009


Just about all of my clients are complaining about slow collections.  Below is how one of them clients handles this issue.

Outstanding Current Balance

If an ongoing client owes more than a small amount of money ($2500 or so)  they won’t do new work (including 2008 tax returns) until they pay 75% of the prior balance.


They would respond to tax notices and other small emergency items without getting paid and they would file extensions for past due clients. 

How are you handling past due clients?
