28 Pricing

28.1 Introduction

In the application there are four reasons for an invoice to include a discount:

  1. 1.

    Because a discount is entered by the sales person creating the quotation, sales order or sales invoice

  2. 2.

    Because the customer’s payment terms include a discount for paying early

  3. 3.

    Because the customer belongs to a type of business which is entitled to discounts

  4. 4.

    Because the customer has been assigned a price matrix leading to discounts

This section deals with items 3 and 4 only.

@@@ types of business are ’old school’; price groups have been introduced to replace types of business with a more fine-grained structure.
