Discount Options

Use this setting to specify how discounts are to be calculated in Hansa (in Contracts, Invoices, Quotations, Sales Orders, Work Sheets and Project Budgets).

To open the Discount Options setting, ensure you are in the System module and then click the [Settings] button in the Navigation Centre. Double-click 'Discount Options' in the 'Settings' list. The 'Discount Options: Inspect' window will open:

When a Discount of 10% is applied to a Unit Price of 200.00, the various calculation options produce the following results:
200 - (200 x 10%) = 180

Margin Factor
200 x 10% = 20

Markup %
200 + (200 x 10%) = 220
The final option will apply the Discount percentage to Cost Prices, not Unit Prices. If the Cost Price is 150.00, applying a Discount of 10% will produce the following result—
Markup % on Cost Price
150 + (150 x 10%) = 165
Confirm the entry by clicking [Save], or cancel it by closing the window using the close box.

Note that this setting does not affect Purchase Orders, Purchase Quotations or Purchase Order Contracts, which always use the 'Discount' method.
