Invoicing and Taxes

Invoice.CreditMemoAmount merge field available in invoice templates

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

Zuora now supports the Invoice.CreditMemoAmount merge field in invoice templates. When you define invoice templates, you can now set the merge field to display the total amount of the credit memos that are applied to the invoice.

Support for updating invoice date when posting invoices or bill runs

When posting invoices or bill runs, you can now update the invoice date through both the Zuora UI and API.

  • When posting an invoice through the Zuora UI, you can now update the invoice date in the posting confirmation dialog for the invoice.
  • When posting a bill run through the Zuora UI, you can now update the invoice date in the posting confirmation dialog for all invoices involved in the bill run.
  • Through the API, you can use the invoiceDate field of the "Update invoices" operation to update the invoice date for specific invoices.
  • Through the API, you can also use the Status and InvoiceDate fields of the "CRUD: Post bill run" operation to specify the new invoice date for all invoices involved in the bill run.

If you choose to update the invoice date, the due date of the corresponding invoice will be recalculated accordingly during the posting process. By default, the new invoice date is the date when you post the invoice or bill run. You can view the update history of the invoice date in the History area on the invoice details page.

See Update invoice dates for more information.

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
