Month end vs month-end

Hello,

I would use the hyphenated version when it’s used as an adjective. And the open compound when used as a noun.

1- I will give you the month-end results by next Monday.

2- It will be done at month end.

What do you think?

If we consider monthend as a valid closed compound then I think we could also use monthend in both sentences above (similar to childcare in British English)


Note: Not talking about these possible options, which are correct without doubt.
It will be done at the month’s end.
It will be done at the end of the month.
