We have customer Types that have different business rules required based by class.



Customers
BillingCustomer#
OperationalCustomer#
CustomerId#
.
.
.

Customer Class Type #1
AcquisitionCode
Disposition
**PayToCustomerId#

Customer Class Type #2
Latitude
Longitude
OperationType
**PayToCustomerId#

Customer Class Type #3
Acquisition Code
Disposition
Notification Method
**SupplierCustomerID#


In the example above, both the SupplierCustomerID# and the payToCustomerID numbers are referring back to the Customers Table. In order to get information about the Pay To Customer, a query to the Customer table is needed.

What is the best practice for handling this type of database design?

Thank you for your help regarding this database design question.
