1921218 - Supplier payment terms in multiple installments


You are trying to configure payment terms for suppliers of the following type: a fixed percentage paid upon receipt and another fixed percentage after a certain amount of time.


It is not possible to use the payment terms configuration for this; a payment term only specifies the discount rate for payments made in a certain amount of time.


In order to achieve the desired behavior, you can follow the steps below:

  1. Go to the Payables work center
  2. Go to the Suppliers > Supplier Accounts view
  3. Select a supplier and click on View
  4. Select the Trade Payables > Invoices / Payments tab
  5. Select a payment and click on Actions > Split Open Item
  6. Add a new row and enter a percentage for the invoice amount; for the first percentage, specify an immediate due date and, for the second, the due date required.
  7. This has to be done manually for each invoice you want to pay using installments.
