    Is itgrammatically correct?

    Hi,

    Can someone tell me what is wrong grammatically in following sentence?

    "I have changed your billing cycle from monthly to annually billing cycle for our services"

    Thanks in advance.

    "I have changed your billing cycle from monthly to annually billing cycle for our services"

    I have changed your billing cycle for services rendered from monthly, to yearly.

    However, as a communication from a company, it is better phrased as:

    Your billing cycle for services rendered has been changed from monthly, to yearly.

    annual = calculated over a period of a year
    This refers, for example, to how simple interest might be calculated on a savings deposit. But here, you are talking about how often a bill is sent out.

    yearly = happening/produced once a year - the bill is made up and sent out not 12 times a year (monthly) but once a year.

    Thank you Peter. You are probably not celebrating "Christmas" exactly, but have a nice day!
