I recently addressed a group of plumbers working in the Malaga area. I asked them what sort of documents they had in place to ensure payment from their customers. A couple said that they had Terms of Trade on their invoices. On looking, I saw that they had written â€œPayment Terms: 7 daysâ€. This is of no value, for 2 reasons: firstly, Terms of Trade need to be pre-disclosed, so an invoice is â€œafter the horse has boltedâ€. Secondly, there are no consequences to impose if the customer does not pay. One guy said to me that he has credit card facilities. I asked him what would happen if the customer said that they don't have a credit card? The only way to have protection in place to pursue your customer for your money is if you have proper documentation in place.
