Issuing Discounts

If you offer discounts to your customers, you can record that information on a separate Discounts and Credits screen in QuickBooks. There are three types of discounts you can issue—sales discounts that you enter on a customer's invoice, early payment discounts recorded automatically for customers who pay within a specified time period, and company-wide discounts such as when your company has a clearance sale on excess inventory items. The first two types of discounts are discussed here. Company-wide discounts are discussed in the “Adjusting Price of Inventory” section of Chapter 14.

Enter a Sales Discount on an Invoice

Press Ctrl+I to open an invoice.

Enter the relevant customer information and a description of the items this customer is purchasing.

Enter Discount in the Item section.

Add a description of the discount, or revise the description that appears.

Enter the percent or exact amount of the discount. Enter the percent or amount as a negative number. If you enter a percent, the discount is calculated based on the item on the line above.

Complete the invoice.
