Apply an AR Credit Memo

If there's an invoice this credit should be applied to, navigate to the 'Apply' tab and click the checkbox next to the invoice(s) you wish to apply this amount to.

Once all is complete you can save the transaction.  

  • Note: If you have applied this to invoices in the 'Apply' tab, then you must Approve instead of just saving.  Selecting 'Approve' will both save and approve the transaction at the same time.
