This example of an accounts receivable collection letter is a little more aggressive.

RE: Past Due Account #
Dear: (Put name in if you have a contact; otherwise, address the letter to the accounts payable department)
Your invoice(s) numbers (list them) dated (date of invoice(s), are past due. As a valued customer, we would like to reiterate that payment is due on all invoices within 30 days (or whatever your terms are).
Invoices not paid by (list specific date), will incur a 3% interest penalty, plus a $10 late fee (use your specific fees and penalties).
We ask that you remit prompt payment as quickly as possible to ensure your account remains in good standing.
If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Debbie in our accounting department.

Sometimes, even a letter as direct as this one still needs a little “push."
