Invoice Level Discounts/Adjustments

by Dana Edel Updated Aug 26, 2020

There are two options for apply discounts/adjustments to an invoice.  Which type you use will depend on the type of discount/adjustment what your client wants to see on the invoice.

These instructions are for an invoice level discount/adjustment, which is applied as an individual line item.

Discounts/adjustments should be entered as negative numbers in order to reduce the invoice total.


LEDES FILES

The discount/adjustment can be added in a LEDES using the code IF (fee discount) or IE (expense discount) in the FEE/INV_ADJ_TYPE field for LEDES98B and LEDES98BI Files.
