Please, take note that we are presently undergoing a review of our outstanding balances to reconcile our account(s) statement auditing and reconciliation. Therefore, in line with our policies, we shall also be auditing all our unpaid invoices and prepaid orders within the next 60 days. As such we need the following clarifications below:
1). Can you please send copies of our unpaid invoices
2). State clearly how much is our outstanding open invoices; given precise payment dates?
3). Do you have any advance (T/T) prepayment ready to be paid via our main account?
Most importantly, in view of the above, our main account is also undergoing auditing; and will not receive payment(s) for the time being. So, we advised that all unpaid / outstanding invoices should be held so we could provide you with our new alternative payment instructions (bank account coordinates) to proceed.
