ERP Term
"Invoice Date "

The Invoice Date is the date the invoice was created.

The Invoice date is the date that the Invoice was created. This date is used to calculate when the payment is due. The Invoice date can be found on the top right corner of the Invoice.  

The invoice date is an incremental number that goes up by one for each new invoice created. This helps businesses keep track of their invoices and payments.  

Each country might have different formats for the invoice number, and on some occasion invoice date and number are the same. Invoice numbers can sometimes be pre-pended by letters or follow a particular schema or syntax.

Please note that the invoice date differs from the due date or the payment date. The due date is usually 14 days after the invoice date, but it can be different depending on the agreement between the business and the customer. The payment date is the date when the customer pays the Invoice.  

An invoice date is a date on an invoice that indicates when the services or products listed on the invoice were provided or delivered. The invoice date is vital for businesses because it helps them track when they need to pay their suppliers and when they should expect to receive payment from their customers. Usually, companies will want to ensure that they're paying their suppliers within 30 days of the invoice date and collecting payments from their customers within 60-90 days of the invoice date.
