Print Friendly, PDF & Email

These are the email templates that we use in our practice with our own clients using Chaser

Where the following fields have the following meaning:

  • <our_name> = your company name
  • <recipient_firstname> = your customers first name
  • <invoice_refnum> = is the invoice number being chased
  • <invoice_amount_owed> = is the outstanding amount of the invoice being chased. So the gross amount including VAT less any payments that have been made towards the invoice
  • <date_due> = is the original due date of the invoice
  • <overdue_days> = is the number of days overdue
  • <sender_firstname> = your first name, include your surname if you prefer the more formal approach
  • <sender_job title> = your job title, so if you are not know to the customer they will know in what capacity you are writing to them
