The Terms screen allows you to set and customize payment terms for your invoices. Payment terms indicate when you expect to receive payment on an invoice from a customer. It is used to display a message on the invoices regarding the date when the invoices are due. In case of tardy clients or late payments, the specified interest or late fee can be charged. These terms determine the accounts receivable and aging for the invoices.
You can create a list of often-used payment terms in the Terms screen. For example, if you expect payment from a customer within 30 days and you charge an interest rate of 5% on late payments, use the Net 30 term having 30 grace days. You can specify the payment terms at the global, client or project level. Click to watch this video on setting up payment terms in CORE.
