I always get myself in a mess with this, so wondered what is the best practise.
I often have to set up recurring monthly invoices for pre-pay services, and many clients require me to invoice them with 30 days notice. However, they usually get their act together quite late, and therefore the first invoice needs only 3 or 4 days notice, then the next invoice would be 30 days etc.
In other words:
Invoice 1 – 3 days notice sent on 11th of month due on 14th
Invoice 2 – 30 days notice sent on 14th
Invoice 3 – 30 days notice sent on 14th
Is there a way to do this with only setting up one recurring invoice (rather than a seperate one for the first)? I think I’ve tried setting up the start date in the past in the hope it would work, but not sure it did.
