Guess who?

Make it a requirement of the contract that all disputes are raised within 14 days of invoice date.

Make it a requirement of the contract that payment has to be made within 28 days of invoice date.

Don't actually issue and send the invoice until 36 days after the invoice tax point date.

Now what company would ever do that?

Arrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrg!

(FYI I have now said we interpret "invoice date" as the "issue date" which HMRC require them to put on an invoice that is not issued on the tax point, and they can lump it).

  1. Are those contract terms even enforceable? Sounds like they could be unfair/infringing on some basic statutory rights. I'm no expert though, just doesn't sound right.

  2. So you received an invoice dated (for example) 1st Dec, but the date the invoice was sent out was 6th January?

    That's just not on
