Net 30 Terms

Net 30 Terms Definitions

Net 30 terms is an example of credit terms used on an invoice. Net 30 terms or n/30 means that payment in full is due 30 days after the date of the invoice.

Net 30 terms are often combined with a discount for early settlement. For example 2% 10 days, net 30 terms or 2/10, n/30 means, that a 2% discount can be taken if payment is made with 10 days, otherwise the full amount is due within 30 days.

Net Terms Example

Suppose an invoice is issued for 1,000 1% 10 days, net 30. If paid within 10 days a discount of 1000 x 1% = 10 can be taken and the amount paid would be 1000 – 10 = 990. If paid after 10 days then the full amount of 1,000 would have to be paid. Under the net 30 terms and conditions, the invoice must be paid within 30 days.

Multiple step discounts

Variations in net 30 day terms exist to allow for multiple step discounts. For example, the invoice terms might be expressed at 3/10, 1/20, net 30, meaning that a 3% discount is available for payment within 10 days, a 1% discount is available for payment within 20 days, and the full amount must be paid within 30 days.
