Sample apology letter for late payment

Sample apology letter for late payment


I am sincerely sorry for the delay in payment for this month. I recently found an error in my account and didn't want to send payment until I was sure that the cheque would not be returned back by the bank.

I apologise for any inconvenience or frustration this cased you. While I take full responsibility for my mistake, I would like to assure you that this was a one-time error on my part. The bank has since accepted responsibility for the error, and I plan to have the funds transferred to you immediately.

The bank has assured me that the circumstances that led to the oversight as unusual and it is unlikely that this will ever happen again.

I have included the cheque for the full amount of Rs. 10,000, signed and dated on 21st February 2014. I would appreciate it if, considering the circumstances and the fact that this is my first infraction, you would be willing to waive the late payment fee.

I have been happy with our business relationship and trust this incident will not jeopardize our future dealings.

I apologise again for the delay and thank you for your time and patience.
