Dear [mention first name of the recipient],

It is with great sorrow and sadness that I have written this letter to you [mention first name of the recipient]. I fully accept my responsibility for making the payment so late even after you had told me about the same over the call.

I just want to tell you that I had all the intentions to make the payment as soon as possible, but due to the sudden power outage, there was no internet connection for over an hour at the hotel, and so I cod not access the same in this dire situation.

I understand that you are probably very pissed and annoyed at me but trust me, I would never want to ruin your special day at any cost as I understand what it means for you. I understand what this achievement means for you, and so I genuinely request you to keep that in mind and not sabotage anything further because of that incident.

So, kindly respect your hardships and dedication, which has given you this opportunity, and celebrate the occasion to its fullest but just remember to respect all the guidelines laid down by the state authorities so that no one is found in violation of anything legal.

I hope that you get many more days like this in the future.

Thanking you

With regards,

Dear [mention first name of the recipient],

I am writing to you to express my regret that I did not make the payment so late even though you had reminded me for so long.

I would have made the payment at the first opportunity itself if not for the urgent meeting I had to attend, which caused all the delay, and I was left with no other option but to wait for the meeting to end to make the payment.

I hope that you will consider my situation before arriving at a decision for same. I genuinely wanted to make sure that you get your gift within the required time, but my responsibility for the [mention the relevant entity type] meant that I had to act at the earliest or it would be a major disaster for everyone associated with the [mention the relevant entity type].

As soon as I got free, I even tried to execute the payment, but as it had gone past midnight, the servers went down, and I could not complete the payment so I finally thought that I would be better to do the same the next day. I accept that it was my fault and I would willingly accept any reprimand for the same from you.

I just wish that you will be considerate of my situation and visit me as soon as possible. Hope to hear from you at the earliest.

Thanking you

With love,

Sub: Letter to Apologize for Late Payment

Dear (Name of the Recipient)

I [mention the name of the candidate] am writing this letter to apologize for the late payment. Even though you have asked me to remind me about this for so long. I am really sorry it went out of my mind and I totally forgot to pay you. I would like you to know that it was not intentional at all and I didn’t mean to make such a terrible mistake.

When I was about to make the payment, I had to run to an important business meeting and after the meeting it totally went out of my mind that I have to make the payment for you. Even though you have reminded me about it over the phone, I still don’t know how I forgot about it. I am so sorry for being irresponsible and careless and not paying you on time. I promise that this kind of thing will never happen again and the first thing I would do is to pay you on time. 

Please consider my situation before making any decision. I really wanted to get your payment done within time but as I have already mentioned before, I totally forgot about it. It does not mean that you are not important to me or I don’t care about you, but it was not at all planned. I hope you will accept my apology and as a token of apology I have attached a cheque with this letter and I hope that you will accept my apology. I hope to hear from you soon and I hope this whole mistake of mine doesn’t affect our relationship with each other. Do contact me whenever you want and I hope this whole thing will remain in the past and we can continue having the good relationship that we had before.

Sincerely,
