Create Full Credit in Rental and Leasing

This document explains how you credit an entire rental invoice or a leasing invoice and then create a new corrective debit invoice.

This can be done when there were errors in the agreement on which the invoice was based.

Outcome

A credit note is created for the entire original invoice. The text 'Credit Note' is printed on the header together with the original invoice number and date. The VAT summary box on the credit note contains VAT information for both the credit note and the original invoice.

A new corrective debit invoice might have been created after the credit note was processed. This invoice is based on the same agreement as the original invoice, but reflects the changes that were made in the agreement or in the basic data. This new debit invoice has no reference to the original invoice.

Also, an accounting journal and a customer invoice journal are printed for both the credit note and the new invoice.

When completing all listed steps, you can send the credit note and the new invoice to the customer or payer.

These updates are done in M3:

Create a Credit Note Proposal

  2. Select an appropriate sorting order and identify the incorrect invoice.

  3. Select the option Credit for the invoice.

  4. In 'Rental Invoice. Credit' (STS360/E) for rental or in the pop-up window that is displayed for leasing, specify credit type 1 (Full credit).

  5. Specify a reason for the credit and, if necessary, a description of why the credit note is created. Press Enter. Press F3.

Approve the Credit Note Proposal

  1. Start 'Rental Invoice Proposal. Update' (STS810/B) or 'Leasing Invoice Proposal. Open' (LTS810/B) and select the option 'Approve invoice' for the proposal.

Adjust Agreement

  1. If you need to adjust the agreement in order to create a correct new debit invoice, start 'Rental Agreement. Open' (STS100) or 'Leasing Agreement. Open' (LTR100). Otherwise, go to step 21 to create a new invoice proposal.

    This instruction is based on panel sequence BE1.

    Once the credit note is created, the invoice interval on the agreements has been set back to as it was when the original invoice was created. This enables you to create a new debit invoice for the same period.

    If the original invoice was a summary invoice, remember to adjust all agreements that needs to be adjusted before creating the new debit invoice.
