Splitting Deductions

Customers occasionally combine different types of deductions. For example, a buyer who runs a trade promotion and also receives broken merchandise in a shipment may combine the costs of the promotion and the broken merchandise into one deduction. To properly account for the two different deduction types, you need to split the original deduction into two separate deductions.

When you split a deduction record into two separate deduction records, the original deduction record is retained, but its status is changed to inactive. The system-generated ID of the original deduction will appear in the split record's Parent ID field.

NOTE:  You can only split deductions where the status is Open.

This task is a step in Process of Managing Promotions Deductions.

To split deductions

  1. Navigate to the Administration - Data screen > Deductions view.
  2. Select a deductions record.
  3. Click the Split view tab.
  4. In the Deductions list, select the appropriate record, and click Split.

    Two new records appear in the Deduction Split list.

  5. In the Split list, select one of the new deduction records, and fill in the fields in the Split Deductions form as required.

    Be sure to adjust the Amount fields to reflect the value of the split deductions.

    Repeat Step 5 for the second new deduction record.
