Member news: DueCourse

DueCourse​, a financial technology startup based in Manchester, announced the launch of their online invoicing software for small businesses and freelance workers earlier this month.

Currently 1.7m small businesses in the UK bill a total of £275bn per year using paper invoices or invoices created on Word/Excel. This often appears unprofessional to their customers, and often leads to the businesses being paid late as they are unable to keep on top of invoices that become overdue.

With ​DueCourse small businesses can now create and send ‘smart’ digital invoices that will help them get paid faster, and remove the hassle of chasing payments. All for free.
