French term or phrase: BO à 90 jours le 10.
Context
Les conditions de règlement sont un paiement total à l'acceptation définitive par BO à 90 jours le 10.

What does BO stand for? - I assume some kind of bank cheque
Does '90 jours le 10', mean that payment is due 90 days from the 10th day of the month???

Promisory note, 90 days on the 10th
Explanation:
Hi!

BO is short for billet à ordre, and payment is to be made in 90 days, but if 90 days later the due date falls on the 11th for example, the payment will be made on the 10th of the following month. That's because a company wants to make payments every 10th of the month, and also gain a bit of time...
