Subject: Apology Letter for the delay in payment
Ref: Invoice Number ———– Dated—————–
Dear Mr. ——————
To start with, let me first apologize for the delays from our side for payment of invoice number ——————— dated —————— We are very sorry for this delay, and we wish to apologize for any inconveniences caused as a result of this.
While we would not wish to make any ingenuine excuses, we would appreciate it if you would kindly understand our situation and excuse us for this delay in payment. We had a few large payments we were expecting from our clients, which we had planned to use to make the payment to you, but the monies were delayed.
We are yet to receive more payments, and we are in touch with these clients, hoping that they will make payment in the next couple of days.
In order to make payment to you, we are in touch with our bankers, and when they allow us to get an overdraft, we shall immediately send the payment to you.
I wish to reassure you that we are committed to making this payment as soon as the funds are available. If all goes well, we are hoping to do this by the end of the week.
I kindly request you to bear with us and please receive more apologies for the delay.
Thank you so much for your cooperation and understand during this time.
