Incorrect estimate

I have a client that created an estimate for progressive invoicing. The estimate is incorrect. However an invoice has already been created using percentages and paid. What is the best way to correct the estimate and future invoices?

Incorrect estimate

Invoices have already been sent to the customer and partially paid.  I cannot change the invoice

I'm here to help correct your transactions in QuickBooks, Rsimm.


You need to void the invoice and start over with the estimate.


If you've already received the payment, simply match the amount of the invoice with the payment. Doing this helps ensure you still have the same record in the system.


Here are the steps on how to void the invoice:

  1. Select Sales from the left menu, then Invoices.
  2. Find the invoice you wish to void.
  3. From the Action column ▼ drop-down menu, select Void.

If you didn't receive the payment, you can delete the invoice. Then, edit the estimate and enter the correct amount.
