Applying Discounts to Charges

Discounts can be applied to a charge at item level. As each charge is created the unit cost is multiplied by the quantity to give a Cost figure.

You can then apply a discount to this to give the Net charge amount. This new discount option can be used on the following screens: Create / Modify a Charge, Estimates, Treatment Plans, Mutli-charges (Standard Charges and Stock items) and Cash Desk (where applying a discount to previous item is used).

You can either enter a discount value or a percentage by entering the percentage amount followed by the percent key (Shift-5).

There is also an additional option in the Practitioner Commission Reports to calculate commission prior to the discount being applied to the charge.

Note: This feature is available from version 4.0.84 onwards
