the one which u enter in thas sales area tab page will have precedence

In customer master we have two terms of payment one in sales area data and other in company code data.

Utility of terms of payment in sales area data is that when we create sales order it automatically flows from customer master. If we dont maintain it in sales area data it will not flow in sales order, even though maintained in company code data.

Now we maintain terms of payment in company code data for financial reference as after billing the document goes to accounting department so they refer terms of payment maintained in company code data.

Both terms of payment can be different also. But in normal scenarios both are kept same.

Also, sales area data is created & referenced by sales people, finance people have limited or no access to that.

Same is applicable for company code data. Sales people have no or limited access to it.
