terms of payment in vendor master
Can we have different terms of payment in vendor master? if yes what is the use of it?
Jürgen L replied
you can have payment terms at company code level and payment terms at purchasing org level.
Company code level payment terms come into the game if finance posts invoices for which you do not have any purchase order.
In a purchase order the payment terms from purchasing org view are taken.
2fields are needed because vendors like a restaurant may not need purchasing views, you never create a purchase order. But finance may have to pay a bill.
And the other way around, you may have vendors with purchasing view, that do not need company code data, as they serve only purchasing needs as order address or goods supplier, but the invoice is posted to the main vendor.
