No. Cash Discount Received or paid are not Operating
Income/Expense. Only Trade Discount shown in the
Purchase/Sales Income is an operation item and needs to be
adjusted with Purchases/Sales while accounting the transaction.

Cash Discount Received can be accounted as Other Income &
Cash Discount Allowed/Paid can be accounted under Financial
Charges, as this is a result of financial decision.
