    Sirs,

    Your invoice in amount of EUR 995,- for services you has contracted on 25/01/2019 is way overdue (25/02/2019) and soon to be penalized with extra fees for delayed settlement.

    Credit Department has issued a non-payment reminder this Monday, informing your company about the penalties which will be soon added in case the payment is further delayed.

    We are expecting your soonest reply if anymore clarifications are needed before the settlement which will prevent the increase with the extra late fees.

      We received the same message and a phone call from this person. I told her to immediately remove us and we are not going to pay. Did you send them any money and if not, what did you do? Did you just ignore them completely?

    Reply-To: "EUBS / Ms Lya" <lya@eubs-accounting.com>

    Dear,

    Thank you for your time over the phone few minutes ago.

    Kindly be informed that the minimum period you contracted the services is 3 years, EUR 995,- price for each edition.

    Considering the situation we are having with your account, the fact that 2 invoices have been penalized and still pending without payment, EUR 2258,- amount, we wish to avoid the service delivery next year and settle your account now with minimum costs.

    EUR 995,- minimum amount representing 1 year subscription must be received by the end of October, in order to be able to initiate the cancellation procedures.

    As soon as the payment is received, we will consider your account fully settled and your order officially closed, granting that no future costs will be generated towards your company.

    Please inform us if the offer is accepted in order to issue a new invoice.

    Best regards,

    Lya, Account Manager
