This is to create, edit, or view A/R Credit Note Entry. A/R Credit Note Entry is also use to knock-off A/R Invoice and/or A/R Debit Note.

A/R Credit Note Entry is different from Sales Credit Note though they are both involving debtors:

  • A/R Credit Note Entry (upon save) will automatically update the related G/L accounts; Sales Credit Note (upon save) will post automatically (depends on option setting) the entries to A/R Credit Note Entry and update the related G/L accounts.
  • You are not allowed to edit A/R Credit Note Entry if it was posted from other source (Sales Credit Note).

Credit Note is also used when debtor A’s debt is to be paid by B, in this case a CN will be created for A and a DN for B.
