Invoicing and Invoice Settlement

Support for applying negative credit memo items and creating negative debit memo items

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.

Zuora has enhanced the Invoice Settlement feature to support the following operations :

  • Create negative debit memo items from negative invoice items or negative product rate plan charges.
  • Apply any item of the Source column to any item of the Target column:
    Source Target
    • Negative credit memo items
    • Taxation items of negative credit memo items
    • Negative invoice items
    • Taxation items of negative invoice items
    • Negative debit memo items
    • Taxation items of negative debit memo items

Support for performing these operations through the REST API was introduced in Zuora Billing Release 252. You can now perform these operations through the Zuora UI.

New name for a billing rule used in Zuora Tax
