Typically, your business transaction(s) with your customers begin with a contract or a credit application. In a typical business setting, businesses extend credit to their customers on thirty (30), forty five (45) or sixty (60) day terms.

The invoice contains the terms and time frame when payment is to be received and is recorded in the company’s books and records.
