Notes to answerer

Peer comments on this answer (and responses from the answerer)
agree  Kristina Kolic: YES. All services provided during the period from the 16th to the 31st day of the month have to be invoiced on the 31st

agree  Ingeborg Gowans: I can only agree and it actually confirms what is following in brackets :)
20 mins

agree  Cetacea: You are absolutely right, of course, but IMO this really isn't a pro question.
41 mins

agree  Ulrike Kraemer: with Kristina and Ingeborg
46 mins

agree  Armorel Young: I agree that that is the translation but I don't understand the example - surely all services from the 1st (not just the 16th) to the 31st will be invoiced on the last day of the month?
