Invoicing and Invoice Settlement

Enhancements on writing off invoices

This feature is only available if you have Invoice Settlement enabled. 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.

You can now write off invoices in any of the following situations:

  • An invoice is never settled by any transactions such as payments or credit memos.
  • An invoice is partially settled by some transactions. For example, any payments or credit memos are applied to an invoice. In this case, only the unsettled part of the invoice can be written off.

The credit memo items and their taxation items created in the write-off are now applied to the corresponding invoice items and invoice taxation items respectively.

The values of the following fields are also changed to the taxation items of credit memo items that are generated in the invoice write-off:

  • taxRate: The value of this field is now set to 0.
  • exemptAmount: The value of this field is now set to 0.
  • taxRateType: The value of this field is now set to null.

Previously, the values of these fields were directly copied from the corresponding invoice taxation item.

See Invoice write-off for more information.
