Cancel credit and debit memos


Cancel credit and debit memos

The Invoice Settlement feature is generally available as of Zuora Billing Release 296 (March 2021). This feature includes Unapplied Payments, Credit and Debit Memos, and Invoice Item Settlement. If you want to have access to the feature, see Invoice Settlement Enablement and Checklist Guide for more information. After Invoice Settlement is enabled, the Invoice Item Adjustment feature will be deprecated for your tenant.

You can cancel credit memos and debit memos only if you have the Billing user permission and the memos are in draft status. If the memos are posted, you are not allowed to cancel them. See Billing Roles for more information about Billing user permissions.
