On the flip side, BTW, I find that putting favorable collection terms 
on invoices, particularly where the client has an accounting dept. that 
watches such things, greatly accelerates payments. I generally offer a 
steep discount (5%) for payment within 7-10 days of my invoice. These 
terms are worded, in the U.S. at least, as "5-10, Net 30". Accountants 
love that stuff.
