    Re: correct?

    "end of calendar year" means 31st December, so here the order should be cancelled 3 months before 31st December. I would just like to know, whether the text is gramatically correct.

    ...written confirmation of the permanent cancellation of our order will be issued 3 months before the end of the calendar year... OR will be issued in September

    But I prefer 'permanent cancellation'. 'Forever' sounds a bit childish. It's grammatically correct though.

    kahhong and anyone else who's interested: other sorts of year would include 'the tax year', 'the fiscal year', 'school year', 'academic year', 'accounting year'...
