For your convenience, all invoices can be paid with a single monthly payment
IADA offers a central billing service whereby companies using services provided by our members frequently
can make a single payment to IADA, who then distributes the funds to the members involved.
Unless you make arrangements for central billing, the normal method is for you to make payment to
our individual member companies for their services, mailing each check to the individual member's address printed on their invoice.
Under central billing, you would make a monthly payment to IADA for invoices from all our member
offices that provided service to you that month. Under central billing, your postage expense, number of checks, record keeping time, and year-end reporting would be minimized.
For more information on our central billing system, or to initiate using this service, please contact
IADA Headquarters at 800-369-IADA, Federal ID #34-0967203, or send e-mail to John D. Williams Sr.
