Chris, We were asked to machine harvest a vineyard. this

Customer Question

Hi Chris,
We were asked to machine harvest a vineyard. this we did. We received an email from the owner with feedback, some positive but but a few negatives and he told us to submit our invoice. which we did on the 6th May he emailed back the same day raising several issues again.
On the 12th May we emailed a response to his raised issues and let him know that we wouldmade several adjustments to the amounts invoiced. We reissued the adjusted invoice on the 2nd June.
No furthur contact from him so presumed he was okay with new invoice.
On the 2nd July send a reminder that his invoice had not been paid.
On July 10th received another email saying he was disputing our invoice again.
So not sure, but is there a time frame that he ashould have resoned saying he was disputing it as it was over amonth from the time he received the reissued invoice?Your thoughts would be apprecieated.Thanks

There is no time limit to dispute an invoice, although the delays make assertions of a genuine dispute look less credible. If you don't want to deal with this person and the invoice is less than $15,000 you can file a claim in the Disputes Tribunal, where you can claim without a lawyer.
