Click Accounts payable > Setup > Payment > Terms of payment.

Use this form to define the terms of payment that you assign to sales orders, purchase orders, customers, and vendors in either Accounts receivable or Accounts payable.

The due date is calculated based on the invoice date and the terms of payment that are specified for a purchase order or sales order. If you have not specified terms of payment for an order, the due date is calculated based on the invoice date and the terms of payment that are assigned to the vendor or customer.

If you are using a payment calendar, and the due date that is calculated is on a non-business day, the due date is moved to the nearest business day. The date is moved either forward or backward, depending on the selection in the Due date update field. For more information, see About payment calendars.
