But I don't know if there is a default period for payment - that would normally be stated in the contract and on the invoice.
Just a follow up on this point:
Art. 75 CO: "Where no time of performance is stated in the contract or evident from the nature of the legal relationship, the obligation may be discharged or called in immediately."

In other words, the invoice would be instantly payable. However, you will need to send them a payment reminder to put them into default (and only from then onwards will you be able to claim default interest).
