Business Definition for: EOM Dating
EOM Dating

arrangement-common in the wholesale drug industry, for example-whereby all purchases made through the 25th of one month are payable within 30 days of the end of the following month; EOM means end of month. Assuming no prompt payment discount, purchases through the 25th of April, for example, will be payable by the end of June. If a discount exists for payment in ten days, payment would have to be made by June 10th to take advantage of it. End of month dating with a 2% discount for prompt payment (10 days) would be expressed in the trade either as: 2%-10 days, EOM, 30, or 2/10 prox. net 30, where prox., or proximo, means "the next."
