I am in a franchise agreement (under Scottish law) that required a monthly service fee payment, commencing on year 2. The franchise agreement did not state payment terms nor when the invoice would be issued. The Franchisor has raised an invoice in the 1st of February 13 for 'February Management Services',when the contract was actually signed on 29th Febuary 2012, they also demanded 7 days payment terms and then raised another invoice 1st of March.
