Payment terms allow you to define how invoice due dates are set and are required in order to setup accounts receivable terms (AR terms). AR terms are selected when creating accounts in order to specify the invoice due dates and dunning rules that apply to the account.
In this example we will add a payment term that is configured with a Net 30 configuration so that payment will be due 30 days after the invoice is rendered/the bill date of the account.
The Start date when configuring a ‘Net’ due date is determined by the bill group setting 'Invoice Due Date Based On'.
For additional details on the fields presented on the payment terms screen see the Payment Terms Screen screen help article.
Payment terms can be setup as needed, there are no prerequisite configuration steps

Optional: if you want to configure actions that occur when invoices are overdue (late payment charges, notifications emails, automatic account suspension) you can do so now or at a later time. See the Dunning Rules Configuration Example article for details on how to setup dunning rules
Accounts receivable terms are required in order to setup accounts in the system. See the Accounts Receivable Configuration Example article for details on how to configure AR Terms
