Could I Get An Invoice Please?

June 9th, 2015 at 07:28 am

We had some electrical work done yesterday for our buyers. Two men came in and took care of the work in less than 15 minutes. They indicated we would get an invoice by email, so as a result we didn't pay them! Strange way to operate a business don't you think?

I've emailed the company. The response was, "I should get to that today, or maybe tomorrow." They must be way understaffed. It really can't take that long to invoice me can it?

We need the invoice to show the buyers we have completed the repairs we agreed to. I also just want to get them paid, so I don't have one more thing to think about.

We also have another larger bill to pay, but that work is not yet complete (fingers crossed it is today). I hope they will have an invoice for us today too. Not that I want to pay a large bill, but I do have the cash set aside for it.

I do highly recommend at least 2% of your home's list price built up in cash because things do come up. You may not need that much but it sure feel better when you do. Smile

I can't wait to be done with this house sale, so I can really work the numbers to see how we fared financially.

Have you had a company invoice you later for work done? Or do you find most repairs are paid immediately upon completion?

    Whenever I get work done, I get invoices mailed/emailed to me 99% of the time actually. I think it's because most companies don't want to have their "worker bees" managing any of the money or the business side of things.

    I am also finding that businesses are emailing or mailing invoices rather than have the employee collect the money. At least that's how it is here in the big city. Smile

    I can understand billing that way for business to business, but if that is the case with residential I think they need to find a quicker way to get the invoice to the customer. It leaves me feeling like I don't want to pay them...which I won't, but that's how I feel.
