I am not a lawyer and not a tax accountant but I was curious where you 
got the 15 days “after payment” from.

According to German UStG 14 / 2 / 2 I would think generally it’s 
“within 6 months” after execution of the service.

Given you are in .ES (and that’s why this matters mostly) UStG 14a / 3 
probably applies which says “has to write an invoice until the 15th 
day of the month following …”

Is that where it’s coming from?


But given Alexa has already followed up that they are on it, I am sure 
it’ll all solve itself quickly.  Maybe they can add a reference to the 
VAT FAQ ;-)
