    Hey @Steveal3aneef! The only way to add a discount showing on the bill would be to add a line item with a negative price to the bill. Hope that helps!

    if the bill has already been reported in a previous period with sales tax added ,by adding a further line with the discount and discount on the sales tax it will throw it out of wack ,surely?

    Hey there @crawley7

    We might need a bit more info about what this looks like in a use-case scenario. Could you elaborate on what you're looking to achieve between your vendor and you?

    Hello @BarsinA :)
    I have the same question on this side.

    I get a 20% discount from my supplier. This allows me to charge my clients the recommended retail price while still marking it up with 20%. When I add the products to an invoice, I need the normal retail price to show, not the w/sale price I'm paying.

    Also on this...
    I must capture the supplier invoice, and add project expenses. This will allow me to see profit.

    Correctly identified by @BarsinA

    Guys you will need to create a new item, enter a negative value which will be manually calculated.

    Double Entry:
    This will reduce your Accounts Payable (a debit entry) and Credit entry to the expense account (you can also choose a liability, asset etc. in this field) tagged to that item.
