The Terms (Payment terms), which under the "Pricing & Terms" tab of the name profile (A debtor or a creditor), have an option of “Next Month” or “Within Days”.
The “Within Days” terms calculate the due date based on the number of days set from the invoice date. Whereas the “Next Month” terms calculate the due date based on the number of days set from the beginning of the following month.
