Introduction to the Generation of Discount Documents

General Information

This chapter describes the automatic generation of discount documents. This is an additional feature for Argentina which is not included in the standard R/3 cash discount functions.

General Processing

The cash discount amount is determined (either automatically by the system by using the payment terms of an open item or by the user) during a payment transaction (in the online and in the payment program). When the payment is posted, an additional line item in the payment document is generated which represents a posting on the vendor/customer account. Also a new document, the cash discount credit memo, is posted together with and cleared by the payment document.
