Credit card payments and balance due correlation


I’m a little confused about when I have to pay off my credit card. I have set up a direct debit to ensure the full amount is paid off each month (16th for me) and this works really well, however I’m unsure as to when I have to pay off the money I spend on my card. For example, I have used the card this month (between the 1st and 16th of July) and these payments have been added to my august statement, so I will not pay interest on them until the 16th of August, at which point the card will be paid off in full. However I want to know if I spend money now (after a balance was due on the 16th) will it be due in august, or September? I’m not sure on the periods in which they decide which statement the payment is due on? Any help would be greatly appreciated, I can’t seem to find anything about it on my providers documents.
