Help: Additional charges
What are the additional charges for?
There are several "additional charges" that can show up on an invoice. These are costs for processing an order outside of the standard price of product. The major charges are shown below:
Sales Tax Charged
Sales tax for the order. Normally sales tax is charged on product purchases only, but in some states freight is also taxable.
Inventory Balance Allowance
This is a running credit issued from Imperial for product returned on the Inventory Balance program.
Steel Equipment Allowance
This is a running credit issued from Imperial for steel equipment purchased from Imperial on the steel equipment program.
This is a discount credit for special promotions or sales.
These charges come from shipping products that are either oversize, overweight, classified as hazardous chemicals, or in some way require a special handling charge to ship.
This charge is the standard amount charged to ship the order.
This credit is issued for those customers who exceed a certain purchase level that qualifies for free freight. Not all orders and customers qualify for this credit.
