Keeping up with manually sending past due reminders to clients can be time consuming. Without the right software, it can be hard to track who owes how much and finding the right words to put in the past due email.
If you use QuickBooks Online for your accounting, these types of reminders can be set up rather quickly. However, it’s a good idea to not just stop there. If your clients repeatedly fail to pay their invoices on time, its wise to set up late fees. This will help motivate them to pay you on time, and in the worst case scenario that they don’t, you can be assured that the balance will be reworked to reflect the extra time it’s cost you.

3. From here you can compose the message you’d like to write for your client and send it off.
Here’s the issue: QuickBooks Online does not allow you to automate this process.
