Should I say/write, "The payment of our invoice no. 250/D dated 05/05/2019 was last week due" or "The payment of our invoice no. 250/D dated 05/05/2019 was due last week"?

Also, is it possible to say/write, "The payment of our invoice no. 250/D dated 05/05/2019 is a week overdue"?

By the way, should I keep or drop the article "the" before "payment" in the sentences above?

Thank you.

No. Can't do that.

teal limewas due last week

Perfect. Use this one.

teal limeis a week overdue

Perfect.

teal limekeep or drop the article "the" before "payment"

I'd drop it. "the" is not wrong, but in business English it would be dropped.

It's the same formula no matter how overdue the payment is.

Payment of invoice no. 250/D dated 05/05/2019 is a week overdue.
Payment of invoice no. 250/D dated 05/05/2019 is two weeks overdue.
Payment of invoice no. 250/D dated 05/05/2019 is 30 days overdue.
