Billing a client

When I deal with small building contractors or consultants they want invoices paid on 14 day or 30 day terms.  When I deal with massive multinational IT companies, they agree to pay invoices on 90 day terms.  So somewhere between 14 and 90 days seems to be normal practice.  I'd generally ask for closer to 14 than 90 all other things being equal.
