A couple of comments:
Those labels look like a good place to start. sub them out and pass the array.
Those large, gnarly if/elsif clauses would be my next step. Create a descriptively named sub like has_many_valid_lodgements, move the logic there and return true or false. This also has the advantage of self-documenting your code. No one will be able to quickly discern what
Look for copy-and-paste code like the Date_Cmp's. Get rid of them. Make 1 sub and name it well.
