To illustrate, let's assume that a company purchases furniture for the office of a newly appointed executive. The cost of the furniture is $10,000 and the invoice allows a discount of 1% if it is paid within 10 days. If the company pays the invoice within 10 days, the Furniture and Fixtures account will increase by $9,900 ($10,000 minus the discount of $100). The depreciation calculations will be based on the cost of $9,900.
