Hi, yes Trade Discounts are DEDUCTED from the List Price in the INVOICE.

In the Receivable Ledger Control A/c we record the Net Amount, that can be found as

                         INVOICE

List Price 10000
Trade Discount (1000)
(10%)
Net Amount 9000 (Amount shown in R.L.C.A)

Hope this clears up the confusion.
Good Luck
