Pinned topic Discount Rate on Purchasing/Invoicing Line Items

‏2013-04-19T12:59:19Z |

When we pruchase items or services from a vendor, that vendor may give us discounts on some of the line items when invoicing us. How can we capture both the discount rate and the original unit price of the item or service?

E.G.  A particular gear has a unit price of $100, but the vendor gives us a 25% discount on the part. 

Thanks.

    This can happen because of expiry of coupon or validity of coupon for certain product. This can also happen because timestamp issue

    May I know how to handle this? There are several tax fields but don't even have one discount column.

      I haven't seen an OOB solution for this, but it could be handled in several ways. After determining the requirements, I would probably start with custom attributes on invoiceline and invoicecost.  You will then need to determine what you want to do.....carry discounted costs to invoice, poline, invvendor, ...

      Most of this could be handled with data definition, app design, and launchpoints.
