Created on  | Last modified on 


In Sage 50 Accounts you can apply a one off or net value discount to the value of an entire customer invoice, credit note, order or quote. You can apply these discounts as a set value or as a percentage of the total value. The net value discount option is not available in Sage 50 Accounts Essentials.
