How can I make the fields "Fiscal Position" and "Customer Payment Term" mandatory field for creating a new company that is marked as Customer?

You can use attrs tag in xml.

For example:

<field name="property_payment_term" attrs="{'required': [('customer','=',True)]}"/>

This will make Customer Payment Term field mandatory when Customer is True.

Same thing you can apply for other fields also.

Thank you for the quick answer. In the developer mode I selected the Edit Form View option to see and edit the xml. But unfortunately I can not find the fields of the Accounting Tab. Do you know where I can find them in order to edit them?

You can find "Accounting" tab in account module.

I can not find this field. Maybe you can make a screenshoot to show me where to find it?

Hi Robert.

You can use attrs attribute to make mandatory field depending on the other field.

For e.g. attrs="{'required': [('customer', '=', True)]}"

You can only see field of Accounting if the partner is a company. Check my updated answer.

I checked the "is a Comnpany" box and selected the Accounting Tab, but when I edit the re.partner form in the View Editor, I only see the fields of the Contacts Tab, the Internal Notes Tab, the Sales & Purchase Tab and the Warnings Tab. There are neither fields from the Payment Payment Follow-up nor from the Accounting Tab :-(
