    No later than the day

    These two are all translated as "one day before the performance day", but I think it's just before the performance on the right day, so the time limit was made one day earlier. What do you think?

    -No later than the day before the performance : You can change dates or times..
    *Refund
    -No later than the day before the performance.

    Re: No later than the day

    The performance is Tuesday. You can get a refund or you can change the date or time until Monday.
    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.

    Why did you think that these meant "on the day of the performance"? Be aware that the sentence is broken into:

    No later than / the day before the performance.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
