Hi @Sruthi Kumaran 

In the Scheduled Trigger in the rule editor, there is a link to learn more about CRON expressions, and on that linked page, it shows examples for the last weekday of the month.  Please look there to learn more.

Kind regards,

Thanks ! This will read as -At 09:00:00am, 3 days before the end of the month, every month. But I am looking specifically for Business days, If any month have last days as Weekends this will not be helpful.
