Method 1 (Recommended)

It will be had 4 transactions

  • Deposit for Non Refundable can use Customer Payment (AR_PM) & set NONREFUNDABLE field to 1
- Default is SR
- Will auto reverse once it being Knock-Off
  • Doc Disc should proportion by sub total amt for mix tax code (See Cash Sales POS-DocDisc)
- Doc Discount = 10% of Document Discount
- Sub Total for SR = 150.24 => Disc (150.24 * 10%) = 15.02
- Sub Total for ZR = 988.88 => Disc (988.88 * 10%) = 98.89


- Doc Discount = 113.91
- Sub Total for SR = 150.24 => Disc ((150.24/1139.12) * 113.91) = 15.02
- Sub Total for ZR = 988.88 => Disc ((988.88/1139.12) * 113.91) = 98.89
  • Mixed Supplies Tax Code
