How do I clear the balance on an invoice that the customer is not going to pay?

I have an invoice from last year with a remaining balance that I don't expect the customer to pay.  I would like to accept the invoice as paid at this point.  How to I eliminate the balance so it stops coming up as an unpaid invoice?  I really don't understand how to do credits.

I had our accountant write off certain invoices.  Which he did as a journal entry which just took the total $ amount and applied to A/R.  I would like to be able to use the write off credit to apply to the particular invoices so that don't keep showing on my aging.  How do I do this?
