I am using AX 2009. Is it possible to specify a fixed discount percentage for a specific vendor in vendor details so that whenever the respective vendor is used in a purchase order the discount is automatically applied.
Hi Rony, have a look at the Vendor trade agreements.
Yes, this is possible. Assuming you want to assign a discount to every order line, you could create and post a Price / Discount agreement journal line with
Relation = Line disc. (purch)
Account code = Table
Account selection = the Vendor
Item code = All
Discount percentage 1 = the fixed discount percentage
You would also need to ensure the tick box 'All items' / 'Vendor' was ticked at Procurement and sourcing -> Setup -> Price/discount -> Activate price/discount -> 'Line discount' tab.
Anton is correct. You can use trade agreements. You can try Line discount or Total discount. If you open the form "Activate price/discount" (Accounts Payable, Setup, Price/discount), you can see which combinations can be made to specify the discount. Also make sure the option you want to use is enabled before you can use the trade agreements.
