Case study – Meena and Fantastic Florists
Meena runs a small business from home, doing website design and IT support for other small businesses. One of her regular clients, Fantastic Florists, has failed to pay her invoice in the amount of $4,000 for the website she built. Meena sent a couple of reminder letters but there has been no response. She tried to contact Fiona from Fantastic Florists by telephone but could not reach her. Meena sent a letter of demand to Fantastic Florists. Fiona from Fantastic Florists offered to pay for part of the outstanding invoice. Meena refused Fiona's offer and started legal action in the Small Claims Division of the Local Court to recover the outstanding amount from Fantastic Florists. Fiona and Meena come to an agreement to settle Meena's claim. Meena prepares a notice of discontinuance form to end the claim in the court.
