Invoice Cheat Sheets To Optimise Your Invoicing

Many businesses in the UK are still facing late payment problems, and it seems to now be affecting businesses of all types and sizes. Chasing up unpaid invoices uses up valuable time and resources.

Late payments can reduce overall the productivity of a business, which can have adverse effects on growth. In some cases, it can result in the business having to close down due to serve cash-flow problems.

Sage has come up with a guide to help businesses in the UK to optimise their invoicing, in an effort to reduce common problems and speed up payments. It has even created an animated invoice cheat sheet to allow the suggestions to be easily implemented. Various aspects of the payment process are looked at from commons causes of delays to proper invoice formats.
