comment How to simplify a long form
@colmcq thanks!!! But the user needs to see the number of nights and departure date, so maybe i could change those readonly fields into labels. Or is there some other way?

comment Alternative UI patterns for a large, shallow tree
Support the answer from @TomClarkson, I think talking to your developer and getting him to lazy load the data would help so that only the data that will appear in the screen is rendered, rendering of all the nodes would be really make the browser cringe.

comment How to simplify a long form
This is a good reference that has given me better ideas. For each point i have mentioned my actions 1. Almost all fields are needed, however i have hidden 10 fields based upon the IncludeTravelFromHome & IncludeReturnTravel, also 2 fields No Of Nights & Departure Date are calculated so have shown in readonly mode 2. Have to do 3. Have to mark compulsory fields 4. validation done inline 5. tab not practical since data is sequential, pages might be feasible 6. progressive disclosure seems the answer but then user neednt go sequentially so might be a issue 7. grouped into field sets

Actually No of night and departure date are automatically calculated. and they show up only when the arrival date is entered. Also the fields [Homeplace, serviceprovider, amount customer, amountserviceprovider etc] are only shown when IncludeTravelFromHome is ticked. Have updated the question with the next design
