A payment request letter is needed where one needs to inform about the payment issue to the concerned person in order to collect the debt. This kind of letter deals with the direct subject matter and serves as a notice that states the subject in a very clear and straight way. A payment request letter gives the complete information about the payment that should be paid by the addressed person within a certain time period. But, as it is a request letter, you need to confirm the tone of the letter.
Here in the example stated below, on behalf of a company, an individual writes this letter to make a request for payment of a credit amount to a person.
Sample Payment Request Letter
Jan 12, 2015
Mr. Anthony Brown,
The purpose of this letter is to inform you that your credit of $3000 still remains unpaid for the Sept, 2014 credit amount. This letter serves you as the notice to pay the amount as soon as possible to avoid penalty for it.
I enclose the invoice (no. 567) along with the letter for you, which gives you the detail regarding the payment. You are requested to pay the amount in a month; otherwise you will be charged 5 % interest in each month.
If you have already paid the said amount, then avoid this letter. We are hopeful to continue a good relation with you.
I am looking forward to your response.
Mr. John Stone
