3319554 - Surcharge is Not Considered in Discount Calculation


In the sales document, for example sales order, you have maintained product discount and surcharge on the item level. You find the surcharge is added into the pricing after discount.

For example, list price is 100 USD, quantity is 1ea,  surcharge is 5%. and discount is 10%.

You want the discount applies after surcharge, to be (100 * 1 + 100*5%)*10%=10.5

But actually, system does not consider surcharge in the discount, it is 10.

So different item net price is calculated.

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to the Sales Orders work center view.
  2. Open sales order ABC. 
  3. In Pricing tab, you can see product discount(%) and surcharge(%) is added to the line 10. 
  4. You notice the surcharge(%) is applied after discount.


In the Business Configuration activity: Configure Price Strategy - Pricing Procedure, you can see Product Discount (%) is at step 011 and Surcharge (%) is at step 013.

As per the sequence, the Surcharge (%) is applied after product discount.


This is the current system design.
