Reflections from a Swede in Norway.

Here you will find my small graffiti board where I write about things I come to think about.

In my blog, I write about the general unfairness of life, about spam mail, vintage computers, board games, Norwegians, current and not-so-current affairs, technology and whatever else occurs to me — in other words, a glorious mess. All opinion expressed here are of course my own, and all similarities with any living people is of course intentional.

When I wrote yesterday’s posting about cheating with dates in invoices, I also sent a mail to Fjordkraft’s customer service, asking a clarification. Below is the response I received — note especially that they actually admit that they not necessarily send the invoice on the same date as it is “produced”:

Date: Thu, 19 Feb 2004 09:57:36 +0100
Subject: Sak nr : 6847

[ Note: The message was originally in Norwegian ]


Your invoice is produced by us, then sent to BBS(bankenes betalingssentral), who forwards it to your Internet bank and sends a mail to you that you have received a new einvoice. The date on the mail from BBS will not be the same as the date the invoice is produced on our side or the date we sent it out from here.

Sincerely customer service

The key phrase here is: The date [...] will not be the same as the date the invoice is produced on our side or the date we sent it out from here.

I knew it!

Jag förstår om detta är principiellt fel, men så länge man har meningsfullt lång betalningsperiod går det väl att överse om fakturadatum inte stämmer med leveransdatum. I de fall som betalningsperioden är mindre än två veckor spelar det förstås större roll när man ska börja räkna. Det har väl tagits upp i bloggen tidigare förresten.

Jo. Det är mest principen jag är ute efter. Och, ja, jag har skrivit om ämnet förr, men då gällde det fakturor som skickats per post, där fakturautställande företag skyllt på långsam postgång.
