When can I send a payment reminder?
Debt collection from companies
If your customer is a company, you can send the payment reminder as soon as the invoice has fallen due. There are no legal provisions on the time limits. According to good debt collection practice, the payment reminder is usually sent 5–7 days from the due date.
Debt collection from consumers
Payment reminders may be sent to consumer customers after the invoice has fallen due. However, the reminder fee (EUR 5) specified in Finnish debt collection legislation may only be collected if the debt has fallen due at least 14 days ago.
