We need your advice in handling discounts configuration considering the below explained scenario:
Standard SAP configuration we know of for cash discount provides two options to recognize cash discount: net or gross.
The net procedure is accomplished in the system by taking the cash discount into account during document posting (this uses a discount clearing account). This means, the cash discount is immediately deducted at time of invoice so that inventory (or expense) account is reduced.
In all other transactions (gross procedure), the system posts the cash discount when you clear the open items (this uses a discount revenue account). This means, the full value of the inventory/expense remains intact (i.e. not reduced), and the discount is posted at time of payment to a separate discount revenue/expense account.
My client wants to use the net procedure but does not want to recognize the discount at time of invoice posting. They want to recognize the discount at time of payment, and the deduction should go back to the cost of the invoice
Is there any way we can accomplish this in standard SAP?
