Letter to Accounts Dept to Release Outstanding Payment

In order to get the payment from certain parties, sometimes you need to follow up several times with them requesting for release of payment due at the earliest.

how to write a letter to a company for release of pending payment
Initially, you should write a letter or an email asking for release of payment against the respective invoices. If still the payment is not received, then you should further follow up by written communication a couple of times. This should be followed by a strong warning letter if payment is not released.

Finally, a legal notice from your lawyer can be issued to the party if no payment is issued after several follow-ups. This can be followed by a legal suit in the court of law if the amount is substantial.

Here is a sample of such a letter to the accounts or finance department of an organisation seeking immediate release of due payment.
