Credit note - is a document issued by a seller to reduce the amount that a customer owes from a previously issued invoice. It is created in the event of a product return, an invoice error, damaged products, and so on.
Credit note is created to reverse accounting and inventory transactions made by an invoice.
The credit note partially or completely reverses the transactions induced by the invoice affecting the transaction journal, the profitability journal, the VAT journal (if your company is a VAT-payer), the inventory journal, and the customers journal. Credit note corrects the inventory quantities and monetary values. The inventory is increased by the number of goods specified in the credit note by debiting the inventory account. The credit note debits the values in the income account and if your company is a VAT-payer, in the output VAT account; the liability account is credited by the same amount (by total amount). The value in the COGS account is amended.
