Title: Re: [ubl] Comment (Procurement Content)
I don’t think this is a big problem.  The Payable Amount will be present on all Orders and, bearing in mind that tax is informative on the majority of Orders,

If you don’t know anything but the total of the extended line values, then, as far as you are concerned, the Line Extension Amount = Payable Amount.
