Billable expenses - unrecoverable

I made a purchase for my customer.
Entered the purchase invoice using billable expense pointing to that customer.
Then I create the Sales Invoice according to the guides. It,s OK.

But, when I issue discount on that line,

Then Billable expenses - unrecoverable shows the amount discounted.

Isn’t it wrong?

when you are giving a discount from the actual expense incurred, then it is an unrecoverable expense because you are applying the discount to the same account.
for example, you spent 100 and if you give a discount of 20, then you are only charging only 80 from the actual 100. the discount 20 cannot be recovered again from your customer.

you can add the discount as a separate line by selecting a suitable account.
