Hi. How can we help?

Discount Breakdown

The Discount Breakdown offers an overview of discounts issued over a user-selected time period. The column headers show the names of the discounts, while each row represents the Accounting groups of the items that were discounted. Use this report to assess how many discounts were issued, the monetary value of those discounts, and which items are being discounted most often.
