Having steady work from a big customer is great, but getting paid in a timely manner is even better. Use these nine tips to get paid faster.
One of the nice things about being a contractor to big business or government agencies is that you can assume that you will get paid and the check won’t bounce as long as you perform the work according to contract specifications.
What you can’t be so sure of is when you’ll get paid. Red tape and minor glitches can cause delays of six months or more between the time an invoice is supposed to get paid and when the check actually arrives.
Although there are some delays you have no control over, others can be prevented. Take these steps to minimize the chance for error so you get paid sooner:
