How can I apply a discount in Quickbooks Desktop?


You want to know how to use a discount in QuickBooks Desktop.


QuickBooks Desktop


  • List the discount item line directly below the line it should apply to, QuickBooks Desktop will respect the tax code mapping of the line immediately above it.   
  • To apply to the whole invoice move the discount line above all lines in the invoice and save.
  • If you would like the discount to apply After-tax, add the discount after a Subtotal line.


Note: You need to identify the discount item as a discount in the items list. 

Note: Discounts will appear in AvaTax as distinct line items.
