# Discounting individual invoice lines

Is it possible to assign discounts to individual items, rather than globally?
There are items I charge to clients at cost but need, currently, to add 11.111% to the price to compensate for a 10% discount, which looks a bit amateur.

There isnâ€™t a way of adding a discount to one particular line, but we do support negative values.

What you would do in this case is add one line for the item at the full price, and then a second line with a negative value for the discount.

Hope that helps!

Thank you Mathew, Iâ€™ll give that a go.

Just to add to that, you can also create negative inventory items. I have all out standard discounts stored this way.

Do you mean you create inventory item A at a full price e.g. ÂŁ10.00, then have inventory item B with the discount price e.g. -ÂŁ1.00 and sell your discounted product as 1 x A plus 1 x B?
e.g. assuming 10% discount:

item A = â€śBox of 12 FML lampsâ€ť ÂŁ95.00 VAT 20%
item B = â€śDiscount on 12 FML lampsâ€ť -ÂŁ9.50 VAT 20%
