In case if parts were accepted by Customer: 20 days after delivery on time and 40 days in case of delayed delivery.
Customer delayed payment risk stays with Xometry, the production partner will be paid on time. In case of claims identified payment terms and refund conditions are discussed additionally.
Proper invoicing significantly speeds up the work and processing:
1. When you are ready with the parts, it is packed in the box and box is ready to be sent to Xometry Europe – you have to issue an invoice to us and upload to your cabinet to the corresponding order.
2. If you are sending partial quantity of the production order – upload an invoice for this partial quantity when you are sending the box. Do not wait until you produce the whole order unless we have specifically agreed with you to do so.
3. If you don’t send us invoice within the same month – it will be very difficult for us to sort this invoice in accounting system into the correct month. It will lead to problems in payment of your invoices
We kindly ask you to indicate in the invoices which you attach to the boxes:
- a real value (as it is stated in PO/production order);
- delivery terms: DAP Ottobrunn
- payment terms: 20 days net after delivery in time, 40 days net in case of delays
The low value (understated customs value) can cause the questions and future problems with German authorities which can influence on our fruitful cooperation.
Below is an example of the value in the PO and the invoice that was sent to us (the example is just for illustrative purposes only). As you can see - the cost is less than in the order.
Please, do not do it like that! Only the real value should be indicated in the invoice.
1. If your company is not registered in Germany, 0% VAT should be added (for German providers it still remains 19%).
2. Payment due date should comply with our conditions listed in the Purchase order - 20 days in case of delivery in time, 40 days in case of delayed delivery.
3. The invoice should be issued only for 1 order each (i.e. bundled invoices will be not accepted)
