A/P Deleting open invoices

I have several open invoices from prior years that are also related to jobs that are now closed. How do I delete or void these so that they no longer show on my open invoice register? I cannot enter a credit memo to zero them out because the job is closed and no longer exists in the current fiscal year.

I've been struggling with this for a while and I know there has to be some way of handling this issue.



  • Lorie -

    If the job is closed or the invoice exists in a prior fiscal period, you can't delete or void the invoice. You would need to credit memo either a shop job or pick an overhead expense to offset in the current fiscal period. Deletion of the invoice will create entries for those prior periods that will change the GL. Once you enter the credit, then print a zero check to clear the invoices from the open register.
