Any other information about payment terms

We have an accepted custom with a significant number of suppliers that we can make payment up to 4 working days later than the invoice payment date. These are included in the '% Invoices not paid within agreed terms' statistic as the guidance specifically states to calculate the statistic based on the details in the invoice or other written documents.
