If your company gives customers a discount for meeting early payment terms, you can calculate the discount on the Customer Payment form.
Note: You can also enter a cash discount manually and track the transaction by Class in the Cash Discount dialog box. Click the Cash Discount column amount for selected invoices to open the Cash Discount dialog box.
On the Customers menu, click Receive Payment.
The Customer Payment form displays all the invoices that are due for a selected customer. Select the check box for the invoices that you are applying the payment to.
Note: You can select more than one invoice. Microsoft Office Accounting calculates the discount for all selected invoices.
On the Actions menu, click Calculate Discount.
Note: If a selected invoice is only partially paid, you can reduce or eliminate the cash discount amount in the Cash Discount dialog box.
On the toolbar, click Save and Close.
