ACTUAL BEHAVIOR
---------------
OLFM Late Interest calculation needs to be based on Net not Gross invoice

Standard OLFM Late Interest calculation is based on the original invoice which was paid late. While it is possible to exclude specific streams, it does not appear possible to exclude the VAT which was applied to the original invoice. This conflicts with the expectation of the Mexican authorities, where the Late Interest should only be applied to the streams themselves, not the total including VAT.

For example, an invoice for 100.00 + 16.00 VAT = 116.00 is paid late. OLFM will calculate the Late Interest based on a balance of 116.00, but the business requirement is to only base Late Interest on a balance of 100.00.
