If I understood well, 月末締/翌月末払 means "close the deal before end of a given month then get payment before end of the following month"

Is the pronunciation "げつまつしめ よくげつはらい"

I am especially unsure about 締 and the い for 払.

    Is it 翌月払 or 翌月末払? – Tsuyoshi Ito Mar 22 '12 at 11:03
  • Yes I thought that too, I think I often hear 翌月払(い). – user1016 Mar 22 '12 at 11:18

I think it's...げつまつしめ、よくげつまつばらい.

I would read it as げつまつじめ、よくげつまつばらい. I was surprised to see that Chocolate reads 月末締 as げつまつしめ, but I suppose that it is either personal or dialectal difference.

Okurigana of a noun such as め in 締め and い in 払い is sometimes omitted, especially when the word is used as part of a compound word.

    I would also read it as げつまつじめ, but rendaku is often optional. – user458 Mar 22 '12 at 12:40
