Partial Payments: Distribute Discounts

The Distribute Discounts check box on the AP Payment Control Detail form, Partial Payments tab.

Select this check box to distribute discount amounts when the transaction is split. When the split is performed and the partial payment created, the discount amounts are distributed proportionately, based on the discount amount and the split amount.

For example, for a transaction of $1000, with a partial payment of $600, and a discount amount of $50, the result would be as follows:

  • Seq #1 ($400) – discount amount would be $20 ($50 x $400/$1000)

  • Seq #2 ($600) – discount amount would be $30 ($50 x $600/$1000)

Clear this check box if not distributing the discount amounts. The discount amount will be taken from the partial payment.
