    Neither means anything to me. What do you mean by 'dependencies'?.

    I don't know what you mean with dependencies, but you could say:

    The invoices attached are overdue.
    (The invoices attached have been overdue for/since.....)

    Oh, important ---> NOT A TEACHER!! Use all I say cautiously.

    It is overdue.
    It is overdue now.
    It is now overdue.

    It has been overdue since April 1.
    It has been overdue for a week.

    NOT: It has been overdue now.

    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.

    English_learn, "this one" is singular so "confuse" after it is incorrect. It should be "confuses".
