I have a few clients for which I have agreed to discount my standard fees. I like to show the discount on the invoice rather than adjusting the billing rate, however if I do this the net discount is shown at the bottom after the GST is added. Since the GST is necessarily also being discounted, this means the wrong amount of GST is printed on the invoice. This causes grief with the clients, since they are not claiming the GST that appears on the invoice and they need to manually calculate the breakdown. Can the discount be applied on the invoice before the GST is added on? I can't find a template laid out this way.
