Dear Cyril,

My understanding is that, in the French chart of account, account 709 is only for a very specific scenario, when you generate a customer refund after the initial customer invoice to compensate for a defect of the product for exemple.

This page explains it very well:

A regular "discount" on a customer invoice line will go to the 707 account (no separation of the discount and the regular price).

Thank you Daniel, yes discount might be in separate lines with specific products... but in case of percentage discount, we need to calculate each line and add a new line for every line in the invoice
It might result into a twice big general ledger.
The same behavior as taxes would be the best solution but with dynamic percentage... and specific account according to the main account
I am sure that French Guys like Akretion, C2C or Acsone already had that question because it's France specific to french account chart

Hello Cyrill,

If it is viable to have the discount in a separate line, that would be a 
configuration only solution.
