Discounting — A beneficial tool, but avoid excess
Auto Laundry News

Thus, the coupon is treated as a cost of sales and not as a marketing expense against revenue when customers redeem them. Another discount is multiwash voucher books. Books are sold at face value and have no alternative use except for exchange at the store. Books have no expiration date and are liabilities. Consequently, operators need to determine when to recognize revenue and when it becomes remote that redemption will occur so they may retain the benefit from unredeemed books.

Employee compensation — What you need to know
Auto Laundry News
It has been a common practice in the detail business to pay employees "by the car." This means a certain price to detail the entire car, treating the employee like a subcontractor, paying no taxes, and providing no workmen's compensation insurance.
