    Hi All,

    We are planning to keep the current and next bill cycle dates in TMF 666. What is the recommended approach to store cycle date information under BillingCycleSpecification? I've few questions while looking at the model. 

    1. billingDateShift - is an integer and according to specification it's an offset of a billing/settlement date. So, is it just the day of the month? 
    2. How can I store information of my next bill date? 
    3. dateShift - what is the difference with billingDateShift? How this should be used?
    4. billingPeriod vs frequency - how are they different and which one to use to specify billing period (monthly/yearly etc)? 

    Thanks in advance for all your help!
