Adjust A/R Open Invoice

The Open Invoice Data Entry selection on the Accounts Receivable Invoice System Menu can be used to adjust invoice dates and make adjustments to invoice amounts. It must be noted that if you change the amount of an open invoice in this manner, it will not affect anything in the system except the customer’s account and will make a posting to the General Ledger.


The proper way to adjust an invoice amount is to issue a credit memo in the Order Entry system, so it affect all receivables, inventory and sales analysis reports. The system will prompt you to enter a General Ledger account number. If you are going to only adjust the date of the invoice, you will enter the Accounts Receivable account number so the amounts posted to the General Ledger will be zero. If you are going to adjust the amount of the invoice, you will enter a revenue account that was used on the original invoice.

Enter the invoice number or ? to insert the invoice number from the display window. Press the Enter key to accept the customer code displayed on your screen. The invoice date and due date, discount amounts and invoice amounts display on your screen.

Press Enter for due date or change the due date on the invoice

If you are only changing the dates of the invoice, you must enter a zero for invoice amount so the original amount of the invoice is not altered. If you want to adjust the invoice amount, you must enter the amount as a negative. If this invoice happens to be a credit invoice, the amount would be positive.
