How to: Calculate Invoice Discounts on Purchase Credit Memos

How to: Calculate Invoice Discounts on Purchase Credit Memos

Possible payment discounts are calculated when a credit memo is posted. The payment discount on credit memos is calculated according to the same principles as payment discounts on invoices. Where a credit memo is applied to an invoice, the possible payment discount amount for the invoice will be reduced by the payment discount amount for the credit memo.

The Payment Terms code is the basis for the payment discount calculation.

To calculate an invoice discount on a purchase credit memo

  1. In the Search box, enter Purchase Credit Memos, and then choose the related link.

  2. Create a new credit memo.

  3. On the General FastTab, in the Buy-from Vendor No. field, select the vendor to apply the credit memo to.

    If the vendor is set up with payment terms that allow invoice discounts on credit memos, then the discount is calculated and applied when you use the Calculate Invoice Discount function. For more information, see How to: Enter Invoice Discount Codes on Vendor Cards.

  4. On the first purchase line, select an item and enter a quantity in the Quantity field.

  5. On the Actions tab, in the Functions group, choose Calculate Invoice Discount.

    The discount is shown in the Inv. Discount Amount field on the purchase credit memo line.

  6. On the Actions tab, in the Posting group, choose Post to post the credit memo.
