you guys are lucky. Here such practices don't work.
The bigger the company (those with accounting department),
the worst the situation. I always write payment terms on my
invoices (generally 30 days end of month), but most of the time those
guys do whatever they want. For instance, I got paid on dec. 15 2004
for a work I did in august...
The latest trick I had to face (10 days ago) in order to delay payment,
was to send me a cheque by post, but to make a mistake in the address...
and the client is a big agency with more than 100 employees...
