Debtor Discount Table

Cost Centres can now have Multiple Discounts added directly through a Discount Table; this is an alternative way to running the Discount through Quick Family Accounting Adjustments.

This new feature is a major improvement allowing schools to apply not only sibling discounts against school fees during the billing process, but also additional discounts / rebates such as staff discounts, parish discounts and hardship discounts.
