Subject: Re: [ubl] PaymentTerms->Amount

Hello Peter,

I am dealing with this topic too,

as in Italy we have many different payment terms use cases.

Under a normal situation we could have something like this:


which means the payment is splitted into equal parts, the 1st to be payed
after 1 month, the 2nd aftr 2 months, so on...

But there are situation where payment is splitted with more complex rules:

- different periods
- different means of payment for each instalment
- different composition of instalments as percentages %
- special IVA/VAT payment terms
- handling of "End of Month, End of next Month" expiration terms.

Thus I think the Payment Term Amount is the explicit splitted part
according to the settlement period and its "description code" which should
clarify exactly that instalment.

Usually accounting systems generates the instalments into a Bill Book
(something to take care of payment due) from the payment terms.

But I think the explicit amount of the payment instalment is necessary as
not all accounting systems are able to understand automatically payment

Hope this helps

Best regards
