Background documentation Entering a Down Payment Request with Cash Discount  Locate the document in its SAP Library structure

If you have agreed on a cash discount in the down payment, you can specify the cash discount amount or the cash discount percentage rate in the down payment request.

The payment program deducts the cash discount when it posts the down payment. If you do not enter a specific amount, it uses the cash discount percentage rate to calculate and post the cash discount amount. Tax is calculated automatically from the cash discount amount, if the down payment is liable to tax. The payment amount is then the difference between the down payment amount and the cash discount.
