In GEM-CAR version 13.0.2, we fixed a problem that made it impossible for you to apply discounts on partial payments to suppliers. This fix will make it easier for you to issue cheques to your suppliers. You will find below the new procedure for this operation as well as the one for version 13.0.1 and the previous versions.


New procedure for version 13.0.2

You can now apply discounts on complete payments as well as partial payments. You can also do it on one single cheque to a supplier if you wish so. Here is how to proceed. 

  1. In the GEM-CAR Main menu, click on Supplier management

  2. In the Supplier management menu at the right, click on Recording payments




  3. In the Recording payments window, choose a supplier.

  4. In the first column, select all the payments that you wish to pay with a discount. 

  5. In the To pay column, enter the partial amounts to be paid if applicable. 

  6. In the Discount % field, enter the discount percentage to be applied to all selected payments .

  7. Click on Generate rebate

  8. Click on Accept.




Procedure for version 13.0.1 and previous versions

For version 13.0.2 and the previous versions, you cannot apply discounts on partial payments. You therefore need to issue two cheques when you wish to make partial payments : a first cheque for the partial payments without a discount and a second one for the complete payments with a discount. 


To issue the first cheque for the complete payments with a discount

  1. In the GEM-CAR Main menu, click on Supplier management

  2. In the Supplier management menu at the right, click on Recording payments




  3. In the Recording payments window, choose a supplier.

  4. In the first column, select all the complete payments that you wish to pay with a discount.  

  5. In the Discount % field, enter the discount percentage to be applied to all selected payments.

  6. Click on Generate rebate

  7. Click on Accept.




To issue the second cheque for the partial payments without a discount

  1. In the GEM-CAR Main menu, click on Supplier management

  2. In the Supplier management menu at the right, click on Recording payments




  3. In the Recording payments window, choose a supplier.

  4. In the first column, select all the complete payments that you wish to pay with a discount.

  5. In the To pay column, enter the partial amounts to be paid. 

  6. If you configured GEM-CAR to apply a discount automatically for this supplier, delete it from the Discount % field. 

  7. Click on Accept.
