Invoicing and reminders

Hi PHPers

I want to write a system that will create and e-mail invoices to my
customers for web services I provide.

Everything from hosting, to domain reg and annual maintenance fees.

For example a new web site would be x due on 1st Jan 2005 and then y
should be due as an annual fee every 1st Jan starting in 2006.

I need to be able to record payments, and where payments are late send out
automatic reminders to my customers.

Thing is there is probably a free script out there that does this, but I am
not sure where to search.  I don't mind writing one myself, but I hate
wasting time trying to re-invent the wheel.

Any suggestions, scripts? Anyone recently done this and can suggest one or
two ideas or pitfalls?

Thanks guys.


DISCLAIMER: There is an extremely small but nonzero chance that,
through a process known as "Tunnelling", this e-mail may spontaneously
disappear from its present location and reappear at any random place in the
Universe, including your neighbour's domicile. The sender will not be
responsible for any damages or inconvenience that may result.

That isn't a PHP issue per se. There are plenty of bookkeeping programs, in
free-, share- and commercial ware fashions.
Indeed, doesn't seem like a job you want to invest a lot of time in. Google
and bookkeeping software doesn't help ?
And to be honest, if this baby makes you money, it may even not be a bad
idea to buy something if that really does what you need better. Investments
can pay for themselves. Did you think about tax consequences ? Does your
script produce nice results the tax people or accountants like to see ?
Think big!

Good luck Nel!
