Hi michael - we purposely did not define any semantics/structure for payments (as we felt this would be domain specific) so instead we simply said that a payment can be expressed as an Asset.

The examples show assets from the UBL schema, but more complex payments (and terms) can be expressed using Good Relations [1].

Can you give an example of the additional attributes you mention and what they would represent?
