In Zudello, you have the flexibility to adjust document mapping to account for discounts or exclude them. This functionality can be particularly useful in specific scenarios.
Scenario 1: Including Discounts for a Specific Supplier
Suppose you often receive invoices from a particular supplier where the unit price of an item doesn't account for the discount, but the line total does reflect the discount.
In such cases, we recommend the following update on the document to ensure the discount is considered for this supplier:
Update the document mapping by mapping only the "Quantity" and the "Line Total."
By following this approach, you ensure that the discount is factored in every time for this specific supplier, resulting in accurate calculations of the line's total.
Scenario 2: Mapping Unit Price (Without Discount) and Quantity
If, however, you choose to map only the "Unit Price" (without discount) and the "Quantity," it's crucial to be aware of the following:
In this configuration, the line total won't include the discount because the discount information isn't factored into the mapping.
As a result, the line total may not match the document total, potentially leading to discrepancies in your records (INVOICE TOTAL $31.87 vs. Zudello Lines Sum $34.84).
In summary, Zudello's flexible document mapping allows you to adapt to various supplier scenarios, including those involving discounts. Careful consideration of your mapping choices is vital to ensure accurate accounting and reporting.
