Did you ever figure out how to do this? We are still showing these invoices outstanding even though the customer took a discount that we issued them. Thanks!

I think this post will help you solve it. Payment Entry - Deductions/Loss not working - #12 by FinForce

In brief, just check in your allocation amount (in last column) amount should be equal to your Sales Invoice and the amount of discount given should be shown as -ve amount under deduction table. So the total of (i) allocation table & (ii) deduction table equal to the payment Received.

I know this is quite an old topic, however in the years since, what have others figured out in this area? I know there is a way to do a general deduction, but I find this a little complicated to do. Plus we get customers who will pay multiple invoices at once and it would be nice to have each deduction tied to each invoice. I know I could create a payment entry for each invoice but that’s kind of pain to do and incorrect since customer has sent in one check for multiple.
