    Currently for scenarios such as this you would have to record an extra transaction as a receipt for the discount.

    If you are using a Bank Feed or Statement Import then the "make adjustment" option in the bottom right when matching a transaction will allow you to do this.

    Hi . By way of example.

    I only use money min/money out to calculate VAT. On most occasions I purchase products over the shop counter and suppliers often give me a small discount e.g. last week a veterinary bill came to €93 and thy vet rounded it back to €90 when I went to pay the bill. The invoice had been made out (incl VAT)for €93. I struggle trying to put the correct VAT into sageone. A discount line on the input screen would help ??

    Thank you for submitting your idea.

    You can currently record discounts when recording Customer Receipts (or Supplier Payments in Accounting) to show a discount you paid/received compared to the value on the invoice.

    However you can't currently record a discount on a Money In/Money Out (Other Receipts/Other Payment in Accounting) transaction as these transactions are designed to be used when there is no invoice involved in the sale/purchase.

    Could you give an example of a scenario in which you would want to record a discount for this transaction type?
