When creating an electronic invoice (e-invoice), the invoice issuer has the option to charge interest if the invoice recipient does not pay the invoice within the allotted time.

Interest may then be charged if payment is not made by the calendar date given on the invoice, or if the invoice is not paid in full within 30 days of the payment due date and receipt of the invoice. The delay is counted from the first day after the due date and ends on the day payment is received. Interest is to be charged for each day of the delay.

Example: For example, you may specify the following terms of payment: Payment is due within 30 days. Payment that is 10 days late will be subject to interest of 5% on the amount due.
