    Anything involving total contract facilities management I'd avoid like the plague, I used to have the contract for all the tesco stores in Chester UK they were the worst payers I've ever dealt with.

    That sucks mate. Did you have any kind of formal contract written up? It might be a bit late on this one but you can have small print on quotes/invoices which add interest for every day/week the payment is overdue. It'll probably put residential customers off but at least with the big companies you'll have them under a barrel.

    I've got the statutory rights printed on my quotes and invoices, they still refused to pay on time.

    But did you state that interest would be added for late payments? If you did then I would think you would be within your rights to take them to court if they don't pay it, assuming its a reasonable amount of interest and not extortionate.
