Hello, I hope you are well. My name is***** am a solicitor advocate and I will be assisting you with your question today. I am very sorry to hear of the problem you are experiencing and I will do my best to help you with this matter.
What you have explained appears very straight forward, there was a service agreement in place with a one month notice period to cancel.
Therefore the other party has to give on months notice to do so.
Your companies approach to bill all outstanding invoices is good.
As for you of income for the month. If the amount of income was a fixed amount, then nit would made sound sense invoicing for that at the same time. However, if the amount was not fixed, and could vary, then you would need to show clearly how you reached the figure.
If no figure could be reached or agreed, then your company would need to sue the other for breach of contract for failing to give the correct notice period.

That is good that the other party is settling the monthly fee.
Unfortunately, as for the commission, that may well have to go to litigation. Obviously, your company is claiming it is due, they are saying no, that your signing the termination notice effective from the 15th June would mean no commission for anything completed after that date.
It will be a legal argument at court where both sides would submit their argument and ultimately a Judge may have to decide.
I would sorry to say, have to lean more to there side as the termination agreement was signed and the commission work job nor completed or signed until 22 days after the termination had taken effect.
Had the termination not been signed off as being accepted, then you could have gone down the breech of contract route, which certainly could have covered the costs of the commission.
You could make that argument, they could counter that by saying that you did mutually agree by your act of signing the agreement to terminate.
I can only really give general advice not detailed case specific. As stated they are clearly going to disagree with your company over this matter. If that happens, it will end uo no doubt at court. As your company will be the party seeking the payment, if will be your company that would have to bring the claim to the court if the other side does not settle.
It will be a litigation matter. It does not help that you signed the document.
I can't really go further than that on the subject.
That is more unusual.
Yes, normally both parties would need to sign an agreement.
I am sorry this has really gone past general advice which I ghave full given on the matter and options open. There would be premium service charges for detailed 121 case specific advice, sorry.
