    Smile "no later than" or "no later than on" correct?

    Hi. I want to know the difference between "no later than" and "no later than on".
    The expression "no later than on" includes a day following "no later than on"?

    (ex.)
    Shareholders who wish to attend the Meeting shall have entered their names in the register of shareholders maintained by Euroclear Sweden AB no later than on Thursday 6 May 2010

    In this case, "no later than on" includes Thursday?
    On the other hand, "no later than" does not include Thursday?

    Thank you for your help.

    'No/not later than Thursday' / No later than on Thurdays

    IMO, they are the same. I would prefer the former. It can be anytime up to 12.00 midnight on Thursday.

    "No later than on" sounds very clumsy to me. I don't believe that the "on" is required for any meaning.

    "no later than Thursday 6 May" includes Thursday.

    I agree "on" is redundant, it doesn't add anything it just makes the sentence awkward.

    Thanks all.
    The expression "no later than on" is frequently used in website of native speakers, which you can find easily by google.

    (ex.)
    www.foxbusiness.com/story/markets/industries/technology/welcome-annual-general-meeting-shareholders-1136172587/

    But I found that the expression is redundant for native speakers thanks to you all.

    Shareholders who wish to attend the Meeting shall:

    - have entered their names in the register of shareholders maintained by Euroclear Sweden AB no later than on Thursday 6 May 2010; and

    This is from an official invitation to the AGM of an international public-listed company too.
