Invalid Date Format error in server side script

HI There

I am receiving an invalid date format error on a Suitelet on the Post part of the script:

I had assumed that maybe the formattedDate variable was returning a string instead of a date value so tried to use format.parse. However, this returns both date and time

    var currentDate = new Date();
    var formattedDate = format.format({
      value: currentDate,
      type: format.Type.DATE,
    log.debug("formattedDate", formattedDate);
var parsedDate= format.parse({
value: "18/04/2024",
type: format.Type.DATE

Why is the parseDate variable returning date/time instead of just date?

The user and company preferences are both for date to be displayed as "DD/MM/YYYY"


Howdy, Stranger!
