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.

If I want to say that payment of the invoice was due two weeks ago using the word "overdue", what should I say/write?

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.
