FAQ. SMEs face additional cost of around £677 a month which are directly attributed to late payments

BRODMIN was created to serve as a platform for business owners, freelancers, self-employed, suppliers, vendors, contractors, and other active members of the B2B industry to express their sentiments concerning late payments and non-payment of invoices.

Hence, the aforementioned B2B participants are allowed to share unpaid invoices to benefit themselves and other members of the community as well.

If you are facing financial difficulties due to unpaid or overdue invoices you can check our web page Helpful Sites. We have added other website links that may be able to help you with recovering outstanding invoices.

A submission is when you add a business/client that does not pay your invoices on time. The information that you add to your listing will be viewable to the public. Your experience with late and non-invoice payments with that client will help others reduce the risk of non-payment.

Nothing! nil, zilch, zip, nada, diddly-squat, nought.

It’s completely free – the only price is the little time it takes to submit a business, which will add value to business owners’ readers and should act as a deterrent to businesses that consider it acceptable to use their suppliers as an interest-free overdraft.

Any business owner, freelancer, self-employed, suppliers, vendors, contractors etc that issue invoices to their clients. If your invoices are not getting paid on time – add those clients to our platform to help others make informed, business decisions.

There is no limit to how many businesses that are not paying their invoices you can add.

However, you can not list the same business more than once. For example, don’t list the same client as a ‘freelancer’ not paying invoices, and then also under their trading name (if they have one).

You can, however, add businesses as separate listings if they use more than one trading name – which would appear on your invoices.

If you have resolved outstanding payments and issues and would like to reflect this on the listing – please contact the list owner (the person hat has added the listing) and request that they update the status of those invoices.

You cannot remove a listing that someone else has added about you or your business.

However, if someone has listed you or your business as paying invoices late you can try to resolve this with the person or business that has added your details.

We will ask a few questions that you can answer by simply selecting the correct options. You can post about your unpaid/outstanding invoices. You can include the total amount that is owed to you and indicates how late the client is with paying those invoices.

You can also leave a review with your information, for example about payment terms, how often you have tried to resolve the issue and what responses (if any) that you may have received.

Some listings “may” require additional prove. In those cases, you can upload (privately and securely) copies of relevant information requested.

Never. Once you add a business or client the information will be there for good. This will help others that research prospects before they hire them.

If the listings would expire or are taken down, other businesses might be negatively affected financially. So, the information will stay online forever, unless you decide that you want to delete the listing for a business that you have added.

If you mean if Brodmin will help you with getting your invoices paid – then no. We provide a free directory for you to list your unpaid invoices but do not get involved in solving the outstanding debt.
