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.

Hi Rony,

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.

Hi Rony,

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.
