My father ran a business and is now deceased. There are outstanding invoices that have been sent to clients awaiting payment.
I've emailed the clients from my own email address stating I am acting on behalf of my father and requesting payment (I can't use my father's email address as the domain name has expired).
I've had no payment or response from these emails that were sent a week ago.
My question is, what is the best way to chase the clients to receive payment given that the owner is deceased?.
- The business will not continue trading
- The business is a Sole Trader in the UK
- There are 4 invoices to different clients, the oldest from 5 months ago
