Get money in your pocket faster by notifying your customers to pay their invoices. There are two ways to gently prod your customers in AccountRight – invoice reminders and unpaid invoice summaries (coming soon).

You can turn reminders on for all customers then deselect a few by visiting the individual card files of certain people. Or, to turn on reminders for a few people, just enable the feature and select individual customers by visiting their card file.

Before you can send reminders, your company file needs to be online and set up to send emails from AccountRight. Once you've set this up, you can automatically send reminders to your customers by following the steps below.

When you enable invoice reminders, your customer will receive an email reminder:

    • 3 days before the invoice due date
    • 1 day after the due date, and
    • 1 fortnight after the due date

Here's what these emails will look like:
