Are suppliers allowed to determine the date of an invoice in their Ts&Cs/supply agreement?

My query is in relation to the date of invoices issued by suppliers: are suppliers allowed to determine the date of an invoice in their Ts&Cs/supply agreement? That is, can suppliers determine when they supply the invoice to the customer? If there is no contractual agreement about the invoicing date, are suppliers free to invoice when they want? Or are there mandatory provisions requiring them to send an invoice within a given time frame?
