ARAPLYCR Accounts Receivable Re-Apply CR/DR Memos

Re-Apply CR/DR Memos

Application Overview


Using the Re-Apply CR/DR Memos application, you can apply a credit memo, debit memo, unapplied payment, or “Quick Adjustment” to an invoice. This application allows you to apply one credit memo or payment to several different invoices. 


It is a very easy and fast application to use in the situation where you have open credit on a customer's account and you want to apply that entire amount to one or several invoices, or where a credit or debit memo was issued to the customer's account, but it was not applied to any invoice, or to the wrong invoice.  The “Quick Adjustment” feature is useful because it can replace the Credit/Debit Memo process when there is an insignificant amount involved, such as overpayment or underpayment by a few cents.



The next time you print the A/R Aging Report, the credit or debit memo or unapplied payment will appear in the same aging period as the invoice that it now applies to.  If the amount of the credit equals the amount still owing on the invoice, both will be cleared from the file the next time the A/R Open Item file is purged.
