How do I best deal with different date formats?

We need to setup invoicing for US customers and we are encountering a real problem with the different date formats. Here, we use a European date format, dd.mm.yyyy but our US customers have a real problem with that and don't understand anything but mm/dd/yyyy. If we switch eg. the date format on my system to the US format then all invoices created on this machine will end up displaying the dates in US format which is unusuable for us. Having to switch back and forth all the time is also a certain way for getting it wrong and thereby upsetting people...

In the variables list, I found the date related variables but those are all for Todays date. That could work for the Invoice date but definitely not for the Due date.

Any ideas how to solve this?
