Which is the correct form on an invoice, or a general date range in a form, and why?
Monkey dolls 12 GBP From 2012-01-03 to 2013-01-02 Monkey dolls 12 GBP Since 2012-01-03 until 2013-01-02
Form format (dates can be modified with a datepicker):
Since: 2012-01-03 until: 2013-01-02
until makes sense and sounds ok to me, yet I know I can be very wrong, at least when it comes to the common usage in the UK and/or US, since English is not my first language.
I am interested in both British and American English.
Until now I've been using
until, yet some articles explicitly say they may not ever be used together, while some people and some other articles get deep into grammar rules which I can't really apply on the context of invoices and forms.
Here's a recent article saying
until can never be used together (last paragraph): http://englishmatsuri.wordpress.com/2013/03/04/for-since-until-from-and-to/
Edit: The date range can start in the past or in the future, and can end in the past or in the future. However, at the time of issuing an invoice or rendering a form, you cannot know when the document will be read or how the form will be filled.
