    a finish date

    The date on which we plan to finish a project is a finish date, a finishing date, or a finished date? Thank you.

    Re: a finish date

    'Due date' or 'deadline'
    I tend to associate 'due date' with academic projects.
    If we are referring to business projects, I would use 'deadline'.
    The terms are interchangeable, however.

    Thanks a lot. One more question, how do we say a date on which we plan to finish reading a book? Is it a finish date, a finishing date, or a finished date? Thank you again.

    Re: a finish date

    I have never met anybody who mentions a date on which they plan to finish reading a book.
