Statement creation is based on an invoice being created (among other things). You'd have to postpone the invoice creation, which would be the bigger challenge. Usually you bill 15 days or more in advance, so postponing invoice creation the first time would be pretty tricky.

The only way I could think of would be to create a billing cycle with bill days set at 0, the switch the billing cycle to another one after the first invoice creation. It would take some custom stored procedures ran from the scheduler to do it, though.
