Create Debit/Credit Memo


This feature enables you to correct an invoice. You trigger creation of a credit memo or debit memo by creating a billing request. A billing request bundles all of the correction amounts for one invoicing document. These can include corrections to the entire document, individual items in the invoicing document, or the billable items on which the invoice items are based. The corrections take effect when the billing request is released.
