How long, legally, does one have, to pay an invoice? I have done extensive research on this, and there are too many contradictions on the Internet and a lot of it seems, to me, to be hearsay. I cannot find a local source of reliable information, and I cannot afford to pay a lawyer to find out.
I have read that, in New South Wales, Australia, one has 30 days to make full payment, after which they are then overdue if the invoice has not yet been paid in full. However, friends and co-workers have also informed me that it is 21 days, while others have stated that the time you have to pay just depends on the Date-Due on the invoice, which is left to the sole discretion of the person requesting payment.
