Flat Discount


Flat Discount means final discount given by a seller on grand total, mostly for the purpose of rounding off. In ERP Next, the Flat Discount is applied on both Item as well as Taxes. Currently, the Flat Discount is available on all selling transactions. You can define an actual amount to be discounted in “Flat Discount” field.

We gave it a first try in October, completed the project, but the logic we implemented limited us to apply flat discount only on item amount, which resulted in the customer paying more taxes. This condition was not fair from Customer’s view-point. So we decided to postpone the project, and give it a more deep thought the next time we implement it.

After a month, we gave it a second try but with a new model which contains –


  1. Apply Flat Discount on both item amount and taxes.
  2. No Flat Discount on Actual taxes.
  3. Distribution of the Flat Discount will be done as per particular’s contribution to the grand total.


How Flat Discount actually works?

  1. Firstly, get the Grand Total for Flat Discount i.e. Grand Total excluding sum of all Actual taxes.Grand Total For Flat Discount = Grand Total – Sum of Actual Taxes

    430 – 100 = 330.

  1. The Flat Discount will be distributed proportionally as per formula:

    Amount after Flat Discount = Amount – (Amount * Flat Discount / Grand Total for Flat Discount)

    For Item “2301” : 100 – (100 * 10 / 330) = 96.97

    For Item “5302” : 200 – (200 * 10 / 330) = 193.94

  1. Now all taxes will be re-calculated on the basis of “Amount after Flat Discount” except Actual Tax, which will lead to discount on tax as well.

    NOTE : Tax Amount after Flat Discount is not calculated for Actual taxes as it is not included under Flat Discount.

The improved flat discount version will allow the customers to get discount not just on the product but also on the tax which they would have paid otherwise on the whole product amount.
