Vendor discounts and payment terms

Posted on by Microsoft Employee

For vendors with a cash discount, is it possible to have terms of payment N45 with the cash discount so if you did not take advantage of the discount then the invoice would pay at 45 days?  We have a vendor set up like this but AX will not pull the invoice into the payment proposal batch based on the discount first, it only looks at the 45 days.

    When running "payment proposal" there is a field called "Select Invoice By"

    By default the value there is "Due date"

    In order for the payment proposal to suggest to you invoices where cash discount can be obtained you need to change the selection to "Due Date and Cash Discount Date" or just "Cash Discount Date"

    Hi kswanson927,

    What selections have you made when creating your payment proposal?

    I am especially interested in whether you selected some filters that prevent that the invoice is picked up and what you selected in the 'select invoices by' field

    Would be great if you can share this Information e.g. by attaching a screenprint.

    Many thanks and best regards,

    There might be different reasons. Below are some of them:

    1. Invoice already marked with another payment (check settle open transactions)

    2. On the invoice transaction Use cash discount = Never (check settle open transactions). It means that cash discount will never be applied

    3. Cash discount date has not become. Change session date time to the discount date to check this (check settle open transactions to review cash discount date on the Cash discount tab)

    4. During payment proposal you have not selected Due date and discounts option (Only Due date was selected)
