Handling International Dates with Online Invoicing

When you have staff worldwide it is inevitable that there is going to be confusion due to differences in language and culture. One subtle but very important misunderstanding occurs with dates, particularly due to differences between the format in the United States (mm/dd/yy) and European countries (dd/mm/yy).

What does it mean if an invoice was raised on 4/9/10 – is it the 9th of April, or 4th of September ? Five months can make a lot of difference, particularly if you are waiting to get paid.

To avoid potential confusion Invoiceplace now prints the invoice date and invoice date in a format including the month. This is printed in the review screen displayed after creating an online invoice.
