Business-to-business and business-to-customer transactions in London do not always result in money being paid upfront. Very often, Businesses which sell products or services may send an invoice to the receiving company or individual after they’ve fulfilled their end of the deal.

The reason could be due to procrastination, no money, or complete avoidance of their financial responsibilities. In any case, businesses have a right to collect debts that are owed to them.
