Create and Send invoice with dated_on in the past?


We’re working on a system where an external client requests that we generate them an invoice with the invoice date set to a specific value, and due on issue.

The dates that we’re being asked to set are almost always prior to the date we get the request.

Does the API support us creating an invoice due at some time in the past, and sending that out? The documentation doesn’t cover this point.

Hi there,

Yes, creating back-dated invoices shouldn’t be an issue.
If/when you come to pay the invoices off, you should ensure the date of the payments is on or after the date of the invoice. We don’t fully support invoice pre-payments - just something to be aware of.

I hope this helps!
