Entries - Creating a New Entry


Overview


Entries are used to credit all or part of an invoice, reasons for the credit can range from a billing error, production error or bad debt write off. Entries can be made and applied to invoices that exist now or one entered in the future.

They can also be used to add additional charges to an invoice such as finance charges or NSF fees.
