How to record a payment received on which settlement discount has been deducted?

Hello there, @trevor6.

 

You can go to Account and Settings and change the allocated discount account from there. Let me guide you through the steps.

 

  1. In your QuickBooks Online (QBO), click the Gear icon and select Account and Settings1.PNG
  2. Go to the Advanced menu, then select the Chart of accounts section.
  3. In the Discount account drop-down, choose the expense account you want to allocate.
  4. Click Save, then Done.2.PNG

Once done, the settlement discount will be allocated to an expense account when receiving the payment. 

 

Also, you can record the payment as a normal process in QuickBooks Online. For more guidance, feel free to check out this article: Record invoice payments in QuickBooks Online.
