If the number is large, that raises the question: "WHY is so much being returned? Is there something wrong with the items we are selling? Are they defective?" If sales returns were just subtracted from the sales revenue account, that possible red-flag information would not be easily seen. One would have to go digging through the Sales general ledger account to find all the returns and add them up. ------- Similarly, it s beneficial to have an easily displayed number for the amount of sales discounts taken. If only a small amount of discounts are being taken by customers, again the question is "WHY aren t customers interested in our discounts? Are our discounts too low? Should we offer a higher discount?" ------- In both cases, separating those items from the Sales Revenue account is primarily an internal management tool, used to see where improvements might be made.
