When I create an invoice I like to show a list of services given with a normal price. I then like to show a discount if invoice is paid in a number of days. That is perfect on the invoice, but when I then want to look at tax summary, the discounts show as purchases which is not what I want to show.
Should I show the discount as an expense or should I show the discount as a reduction in the item it refers to, which is what I do. These are service items for e.g. treat for ants $120.00, but if they pay in 7 days they get a $40.00 discount.
At the moment I enter treat for ants in pest control, and then enter discount in the same item, treat for ants and a minus -$40.00 in pest control, but that -$40.00 shows up as a purchase, so I am doing something wrong, can you please help.
