Network payment delays forced me to close my business

It’s finally happened – I’ve gone out of business.

Is this due to lack of customers or products? No, it’s due to my network not paying me.

I haven’t received a thing since the first week of January. It’s now April and I am owed £7,000 – not the largest sum I admit, but essential for me to make a living.

I will not name the network involved but I imagine most brokers know the names of the companies having problems at the moment.

I’ve tried all avenues to get someone to speak me about this problem, from the commissions department right up to the boss, but nobody has responded.

After all this time I can’t believe it was a network that forced me to close my company. Brokers please take note – as soon as payments start becoming late it’s time to worry.
