    due

    Hello,

    could you please tell me what "due" means in the following sentence:

    The penalty will be calculated quarterly; the supplier will send credit invoice due end of the following month.

    Does it mean "payable" or does it only say that the credit invoice should be sent by the end of the following month?

    Thank you very much.

    Hanka

    Re: due

    It could mean either, but knowing issuers of credit I'd say your first guess was right.

    (Incidentally, there's an un-British twang about "due end of month". BE speakers
    would nornally say "due by the end...".)
