Q: Purchased merchandise on credit for R500 subject to trade discount of 20%... What journals must I use?A: DR: Purchases R400CR Creditors R400.That's all. You don't record trade discounts as a separate entry of R200, you just net the amount and show the final figure (R400/R500 = 80% or the final figure after 20% discount).
