Changes to Applying a Settlement Discount to a Purchase Invoice

Page approved.

From version 8.133 the process of applying a settlement discount against a purchase invoice has changed.


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

Previously, when entering the settlement discount, multiple prompts were displayed and the date used for the discount was always that of the associated Purchase Invoice / Transaction. From version8.133 the user will only be presented with two prompts, one for the initial data (such as the discount percentage to be applied and the posting date) and one to confirm the final amount of the discount.
