Why has my vendor discount been offset?

Overview

In your liability worksheet, you have found an adjustment with a note similar to "Offsetting current discount amount due to lack of collect amount".

Environment

Avalara Returns

Resolution

  • There are instances where you will see the negative discount accompanied by a matching positive amount.
    • The notation on the positive amount will be labeled as "Offsetting current discount amount due to lack of collect amount".
  • This is due to the Remit to Avalara and the Return Remittance amounts in the prior period being $0 or negative.
  • As nothing was paid to Avalara for the remittance and no payment was submitted to the jurisdiction, the prior period discount would not apply.
