To make an event that repeats on the last day of each month, we'll create a file that contains the event, and then import it into Google Calendar: Paste the following text into a new .txt file (e.g. with notepad): BEGIN:VCALENDAR BEGIN:VEVENT DTSTART:20160731 DTEND:20160731 RRULE:FREQ=MONTHLY;BYDAY=SU,MO,TU,WE,TH,FR,SA;BYSETPOS=-1;WKST=SU SUMMARY:Name of ...

Although Google Calendar doesn't allow you to create or modify arbitrary recurrence rules, the iCalendar specification which it uses and understands is quite robust in this regard.

I have had the same need for quite some time. And because I couldn't find anything suitable, I've built my own app. It's called Calify. http://www.califyapp.com The installer registers the app as the default program for handling *.ics files, so it works for both opening e-mail attachments and downloading event detail exports from webpages.

So you can grab the embed code from the html link in the share settings and splice them together manually. I needed this and just now experimented and it works.
