Hello and apologies if I'm posting to the wrong section.


For the past 4 months, I have been providing consulting services to two individuals wishing to set up an investment managerment company. There is no company as yet, but it has been in the process of being set up for several months (hence I am consulting for the individuals).


Here's the problem: I have not been paid despite constant reminders. Every time I ask (by email or verbally), I have been given assurances that 'the money is coming'. I have no written contract detailing terms of consultancy but I have verbal (with witnesses), email and text messages that I believe offer ample proof of consultancy. I have also attended several meeting with them or on behalf of the individuals. I have now issued an invoice (for the 4 months of consultancy) to the two individuals (one of whom lives in Italy). However, I don't believe they will pay.


What should be my next step? Do I need to issue a Statutory Letter of Demand (SLD) now or do I need to wait until a reasonable amount of time has passed (from the date that I issued the invoice) before I can send the letter? Is there anything else I should do? One final thing: I have issued an invoice to cover up to the end of June - obviously the month of June is not yet in arrears given that we are only half way through it. But the other three months (March-May) are. Does that make a difference as to when I can issue the SLD? Any help would be hugely appreciated. Thank you
