Is the first example of discount a trade discount and second cash discount?
Do we record the net balance of trade discount and gross balance of cash discount?
John Moffat says

Yes to both. (Although for sales, the treatment of a discount for early payment is different and is covered in a later lecture on IAS15)

sir when we give quantity discount where is the discount allowed accounted for? even though its not affecting the double entry,i think it affects the valuation of budgeted sales hence profit. will it be presented in SOPL as well? thank you.

A quantity discount simply reduces the amount on the invoice. It is the amount on the invoice that is entered as normal in the sales and the receivables account.

If the individual entries have a mistaken, are the control accounts affected ? I feel the answer should be “no” unless the individual entries in the source data – the books of prime entries are wrong. But here the individual accounts have been entered separately as notes to the Ledgers. No double entries. Therefore I believe if there was a mistake in the individual entries in the ledger, the Control accounts would not be affected. Please confirm, Sir

Sir, sorry for my confusion but I have difficult identifying the difference between receivable journal and receivable ledger. What are the purposes of these two, then why does the receivable journal datas combine and form receivable ledger control a/c, but how about the datas in receive ledger? They only exist for checking the balance between their balance and receivable ledger control a/c balance?

The receivables ledger control account is part of the double entry and records the total owed from customers. In order to find out the total to enter in this account, each individual invoice is listed in the receivables journal and then the total is added.
The reason we also have a receivables ledger is that although the control account shows the total we are owed (and this is all we need for the SOFP), the company also needs to know how much each individual customers owes (so that, for example, we can chase anyone who is late paying).

True, and thanks (although I am not going to re-record the whole lecture just for that 🙂 )

Sir,can you help me with this question?
Which of the following statements concerning the receivables ledger control account is incorrect?
D. It ensures that errors cannot occur in relation to transactions between the business and its customers.
The answer is D
November 24, 2018 at 8:53 am
In future you must ask this sort of question in the Ask the Tutor Forum, and not as a comment on a lecture.
It is incorrect because although it will find many errors, there are errors that it would not find. For example, suppose we sent an invoice to a customer for $100, but by mistake listed it in the receivables day book as being $10. The wrong figure would then be entered in the receivables ledger, and also the total in the day book would be wrong and so the wrong figure would also be entered in the receivables ledger control account. As a result, the balance on the control account will still equal to total of the list of balances, even though the figure is wrong.

Sir,may I know what’s new in these updated lectures? I had watched your previous Control A/c lectures

They are better recordings – the syllabus has not changed.
