Calculate late payment penalties

Calul des pénalités de retard
Principles of late payment penalties:

  • They are due the day following the due date of the invoice. They are mandatory in countries belonging to European Community.
  • It is not necessary to charge them.
  • The standard interest rate depends on country's inflation. It should be sufficiently high to induce the customer to pay on time. I recommend to apply a minimum rate of 12%.
  • They must be mentioned on the invoices and on the sales terms and conditions.
