Explain Discounts allowed.

When a business offers a credit customer a discount for early settlement, the discount granted is a discount allowed. The consequence of a discount allowed results in the business receiving a reduced amount for a sale. Although the sales revenue is reduced, a discount allowed is never charged to the trading account. Discounts allowed are always charged as a separate expense to the profit and loss account.
