How do I write a Letter of Demand?
The first thing you need to do is confirm the name, address and contact details of the person or business that owes you money. You must address the letter to the right person/business. Also confirm the total amount outstanding, the due date and the goods/services you provided.
Double-check any invoices, contracts or correspondence relating to the debt. You should attach these as evidence when you send the Letter of Demand.

How do I send a Letter of Demand?
There are several ways you can send the letter, but the main thing is you need to make sure they receive it.
We recommend you send via Registered Post so you can get proof of delivery from Australia Post. You can also send via email with a Read Receipt, but this is not as reliable, and emails are easier to ignore than a letter.
The final option is a process service firm such as Polo CPI. They will attempt to ‘serve’ the letter to the recipient in person.
