Invoice Settlement

Support for writing off or reversing invoices with all zero-balance items

This feature is only available if you have the Invoice Settlement feature enabled. The Invoice Settlement feature is in Limited Availability. If you want to have access to the feature, submit a request at Zuora Global Support

You can now write off or reverse invoices in the scenario where all the items of an invoice have zero balance, including invoice items and their corresponding taxation items.

This change is available only if you set the Create credit memos mirroring invoice items billing rule to Yes, the newly introduced option. See Define Billing Rules for more information.

Enhancement for rounding credit or debit amounts in memo creation

This feature is only available if you have the Invoice Settlement feature enabled. The Invoice Settlement feature is in Limited Availability. If you want to have access to the feature, submit a request at Zuora Global Support

During memo creation, Zuora can now automatically round credit or debit amounts based on the currency setting rounding increment for the currencies that do not round to the nearest cent. For example, Swedish kronor are typically rounded to the nearest 10 cents, and Swiss francs to the nearest 5 cents.

Zuora Billing UI enhancements

The following changes are available as of this release.

  • On the All Payments page, the Status - Processing option is now available in the Views area for you to filter the payments that are displayed in the expanded view and list view. Previously, this option was not displayed.
  • On the All Invoice Item Adjustments page, the default option of the By list is now Adjustment Number to determine the invoice item adjustments that are displayed in the expanded view and list view. Previously, the default option was Account Name.
  • Zuora has enhanced the Tab-key navigation and Enter-key submission functions on form data submission pages:
    • In the Safari browser, the functions now work properly even if the Preferences > Advanced > Press tab to Highlight each item on a webpage check box is not selected. 
    • In the Firefox browser, the functions are now supported.
