The UK government website specifies that invoices are payable within 30 days unless a different payment date is agreed.
Unless you agree a payment date, the customer must pay you within 30 days of getting your invoice or the goods or service.

If I issue an invoice to a client with a due date of say 2 weeks from the invoice date, would a lack of response to that invoice constitute acceptance of that due date? Or is explicit agreement required?
I'm not trying to pull a fast one on my client here and sneakily charge them interest, however I want to ensure my initial invoice is paid before I am too invested into subsequent work, and I am aware from working with other contractors that a 14 day due date seems to be common practice
