I recently received an invoice from a company requesting immediate payment. The due date on the invoice was before the issue date of the invoice and I received the invoice around 10 days after that date, making the invoice already 11 days past due on receipt.
This was from an estate management company. Your typical shady scumbags that plague every recently built housing estate in the UK.
Today I received a letter from a collections company for non payment, threatening adminstration fees higher than the amount owed.
I have no issues making payment, but considering they are completely incompetent and take months to resolve issues or simply ignore emails I'm wondering if I can refuse payment on the grounds that the invoice is invalid?
Is the invoice invalid if the due date falls in the past?
