Discounts on AP Credit Memo

  • 1.  Discounts on AP Credit Memo

    Posted Feb 06, 2019 10:26 AM
    ​​We are experiencing AP credit memo's not being discounted.  Is this standard for GP?  Can it be changed?  If we receive an invoice for $100 with a $1 discount and a credit memo for $100 with a $1 discount, we will end up with $1 of credit memo remaining open.  The invoice will take the available discount, but the credit memo ignores its available discount.

    What am I missing?

    In order to rectify this, we either have to enter the credit memo short the discount or we have to force the invoice to not take the available discount.  There's got to be a better way.

    Great Plains does not calculate due dates, or discount dates, or discounts on credit memos, only on invoices.
    I am in IT, I forget whether the discount is calculated on the total invoice or the invoice less the credit memo.

    ​Hi @Josh Case

    When you enter the credit memo, place the discount in the Trade Discount field:

    ​Hi Josh,

    If your Invoice is $100 with $1 discount, your credit memo amount should be $99 only.
