Assigning Classes

We separate purchases by class.   When we purchase an item it is easy enough to assign a class to it, but if we pay on terms and get a discount, we cannot determine how to assign a class to a discount and this ends up as unclassified.   We would rather not have unclassified amounts, so we need a way to assign a class to the amount of the discount.

On the pay bills screen, when you use the "set discount" button, you can assign a class to the discount. Mark Wagner, CPA

Re: Assigning Classes

Well that could not be simpler.   Is there a way to assign a class after the fact?

Let me be the first to welcome you to the Community, @SVSFla.

@mcwagner is right. You can assign a class to a discount when paying bills on the Discount and Credits window. Here’s how:

  1. Go to the Vendors menu and select Pay Bills.
  2. Select the transaction by placing a check mark on the box next to it. 
  3. Click Set Discount.
  4. On the Discount and Credits window, click the drop-down arrow next to Discount Class to assign a class to it and Discount Account too.
  5. Hit Done.
  6. Choose Pay Selected Bills.
  7. Pick Done to close out the window.

Right after, run a vendor report. The discount should now show its assigned class next to it. Here’s a screenshot for visual reference:
