    Noooo heavens forbid. I dont see the point in commercial window cleaning as they make you wait soo long for payments.

    I also do a lot of industrial deep cleaning amd that is all cheque on completion so no messing about waiting :))

    I don't really understand why folk make a big fuss about waiting for payment from commercial jobs... I could understand on a fledgling round, where cash flow might be a touch tight but with an established business it shouldn't be a problem...

    I disagree with the entire 30 days nonsense in our business.

    It came about when suppliers would give retailers 30 days to pay so they had time to sell product to get the money in.

    We supply a service not a product they cant sell on our service and don't profit from it in a financial sense so they don't need 30 days.

    If the jobs done they can pay. Simple process.

    It's not about weather or not ine can wait for the payment it's about WHY SHOULD one wait for a payment?

    It is cause in modern times WE the provider have come to lead them to believe that this is acceptible practice.

    Regardless of size of round tight control of cash flow is critical and I chose to control mine by not offering terms.

    I'm with high High-tower on this. I do lots of commercial work. I'm happy to invoice and then wait. It all comes in in the end. Just sit back and wait. They always pay up.
