I don't think you understand what the interim invoice does. It is NOT
a dunning or late notice. Interim invoices pick up charges/credits on
an account that is not due to be billed (ie, they've paid a year and
9 months to go). If they accure usage charges, you put a charge/credit
the account, etc, rather than waiting 9 months to send them the bill
those new charges, it will create an interim invoice with those new
charges and send it now.
