The Swedes have a nice abbreviation t.o.m (Till Och Med) - literally "to and with".

When talking about an expiry date of a period you write "t.o.m date. Which means "up to and including".

In English there is often confusion when people state "to" an end date. It can be taken as either it expires at the end of that day - or at the end of the day before.
