In Paradigm, there are 2 types of discounts that can be applied to a document, namely **Line Discount** and **Document Discount.**

Lines are added to a document and a discount can be applied to specific lines on that document. This is the **Line Discount**.

The **Document Discount** applies a discount to the whole document . The discounts can all apply at the same time or individually.

__Line Discount__

1. These columns show the discount per line.

2. This value is the total AFTER the discount is deducted per lines above.

3. This field is an additional discount option to apply to the whole document.

4. This is the total after an ADDITIONAL discount has been applied to the document.

The line discount is applied to the exclusive Unit Price:

Discount Amount = Qty * Unit Price * (Disc% / 100)

e.g. 20 * 45.9 * (5 / 100) = R45.90

Total Exclusive = Qty * Unit Price - Discount Amount

e.g. 20 * 45.9 - R45.9 = R872.10

__Document Discount__

5. This option applies the discount to the whole document.

The document discount is applied to the Total Inclusive:

Total After Discount = Total Inclusive - [Total Inclusive * (Discount% / 100)]

e.g. R16398.96 - [R16398.96 * (10 / 100)] = R14759.06
