Cause

For item type - Subsequent Debit, Subsequent Credit, Additional Cost Credit, Additional Cost Debit items, the Discount, Surcharges and Reductions do not apply.

Here the additional cost items or the Subsequent items (namely Credit/Debit) are being borne by the supplier and hence the discounts are not applicable.
