Overview

Settlement Discounts can be applied to Purchase Invoices or entered in the [ Supplier | Detail | Statement ] tab when agreed with the Supplier.

Notes:

  • The settlement discount that is applied is proportional, meaning it only applies VAT on the discount to those items in the PO which are tax eligible. For example, if you apply a Settlement Discount of 10%, then this 10% is applied to the Net Total of the PO and the Tax Total of the PO. The total Settlement Discount is the sum of these two figures. The breakdown of these calculations can be viewed by clicking 'Show Journal Details' from the Statement Transactions grid in the [ Suppler | Detail | Statement ].
  • The user can either enter a percentage settlement discount or a flat rate, but not both.
