In this episode we discuss the emotive subject of finances and getting paid. Showbiz reporter Ed Dyson and sex and relationships writer Charlotte Grainger share their advice on how to organise invoices, chase late payments and whether it's necessary to get an accountant. 

We also discuss the controversial topics of payment on publication, working for free and how to negotiate fair rates. 

Discuss finances and much more in our Facebook community.
