Details:

Introducing 'Early Pay Discounts' in Manage Payables

i.  Users can now apply early pay discounts offered by their Suppliers while scheduling an invoice payment.



ii. For QuickBooks Online and QuickBooks Desktop users, users must first link a General Ledger account to post the discounts in the ‘Payment settings’ tab of the Payables settings menu.

Users will be prompted to specify a General Ledger account while applying a discount if an account is not defined in the Payables settings.



iii. In the Unpaid invoices tab, invoices from Suppliers offering early pay discounts will be indicated by a ‘%’ sign under the ‘%’ column.

  • A green ‘%’ icon indicates that the discount is applicable.
  • A green-filled ‘%’ icon indicates that an applicable discount is applied.
  • An amber ‘%’ icon indicates that the discount is applicable and expires soon.
  • A filled amber ’%’ icon indicates the discount is applied and is expiring soon.
  • A red ‘%’ icon indicates that the discount is applicable but the discount window has lapsed.



iv. User can click on the ‘%’ icon to view details as:

  • Payment terms
  • Invoice date
  • Discount amount
  • Expiry date



v. Users with permissions can apply discounts or remove discounts from invoices from the ‘PAY’ tab in the ‘Unpaid invoices’ section.

vi. When a discount is applied,  the discount amount is reduced from the payment amount and invoice payment is ready for scheduling.

vii. For a paid invoice, all the applied discounts can be viewed under the ‘History’ tab of the Supplier profile menu or under the ‘Invoice History’ tab.



viii. Users can filter for invoices with available discounts by clicking on the filter in the Unpaid invoices tab and choosing a filter from:

  • Discount available
  • Discount applied
