Vendor credit

I applied a credit to an invoice and paid the invoice.  I then realized the credit was to apply to a different invoice.  I voided the check.  How do I apply the credit to a different invoice.

Vendor credit

Hi Susan C,


To apply the vendor credit to the correct bill, we can change the vendor name assigned to it.


Here are the steps:

  1. On the left panel, click Expenses.
  2. Click the Vendors tab, and click the vendor's name where the credit was applied.
  3. Find the vendor credit transaction and click it to open.
  4. Select the correct vendor from the Choose a vendor drop-down list.
  5. Click Save and Close.

Then, apply the vendor credit to the payment.


If you have any other questions or concerns, please let me know. Have a great day!

Vendor credit

You didn't need to Void the Check. The check is linked only to a Bill.


The Credit also is linked to the bill.


Like this:

Bill Payment Check ==> Bill <== Bill Credit


To Unlink the Credit; you Open it. Change the Radio button at the top to Bill and Save (not save and close). You are warned it is linked and that this will unlink it.


Now change it back to a Credit. Save and Close.
