Any time you like.
The only difference is that you are more likely to hear people use "towards" in Britain than in the US.

Re: toward or towards

I have heard that towards refers to direction where toward reflects "with respect to" or "on the verge of".
I walked towards the car.
We are working toward a common goal.
In common usage, I think that they are more used interchangeably.




see you later
