    Hi Maltin,


    Thanks for your post, and welcome to the Community Forum. These terms are typically used in accounting to track discounts on purchases or sales. Generally, "Discount Given" is used when you provide a discount to your customers, while "Discount Taken" is used when you receive a discount from your suppliers. However, the exact usage can vary depending on your company's accounting practices. For a more accurate and detailed explanation, I recommend reaching out to your team or to your accountant regarding this. You may also look at this helpful article for more information on using customer discounts.
