    Re: OVERDUE PAYMENT REMINDER

    1. You can use of instead of amounting to.
    2. for you further understanding - for your information
    3. we have not seen received any payment
    4. The waiver of late charges is an incentive to settle the outstanding payment. It does not expedite the payment. It is for the creditor to act.
    I am not a teacher or a native speaker.

    Can I split as above?
    This is clearer.

    These are typical form letters. One is sent each month until money is received.

    Re: OVERDUE PAYMENT REMINDER

    The OP said those forms are sent to "a debtor" thus prompting my question. Better would be:

    These forms are sent to people who are behind on their payments.

    Or:

    These forms are sent to people who are late in paying their bills.

    Or:

    These forms are sent to people who haven't paid their bills on time.

    Or:

    These forms are sent to people who are in arrears.

    Not a professional teacher
