In this article we want to show you how you can set up rules to automate due dates for your suppliers. By default, Datamolino always tries to return the due date printed on the invoice but in some cases, you may want to set up overriding rules for individual suppliers.

First, go into the 'Supplier Automation' from your folder

or from inside the document

Here, you can choose from the the following options:

Now, let's have a look how the settings work:

Due date setting

How Datamolino calculates it:

... of current month

... of following month

From the import date (not invoice issue date)

... day(s) after the bill date

... day(s) after the end of the bill month

From the issue date printed on the invoice

Few examples:

... of current month

... of following month

  • You receive a document with the issue date October 30. If you import the document on 2 November with a due date '10 days of following month', the invoice will be due on 10 December because Datamolino takes into consideration the import date (the actual date when the invoice is imported)

.. day(s) after the bill date

... day(s) after the end of the bill month

  • If you need due date being calculated from the invoice issue date, please use the above two settings.
  • For example, you receive a document with the issue date October 30. You want the document from this supplier to be always due on 15th of the following month the document was issued.
  • Please use the setting '15 days after the end of the bill month'. In this case, Datamolino calculates due date from the issue date printed on the invoice.

ProTip: If you want to set up a default due date for your folder, so that all contacts use the same setting, you can achieve this by using:
