Supplier credit notes are used in case you want to return goods to your supplier. They are also used in cases where the vendor, for whatever reason, offers you a discount on already invoiced items.
To add the credit notes issued by your suppliers at Elorus, select (...)More-> Supplier Credits (Purchases) -> Add.
As with the sales credit notes, you can correlate a bill with the supplier credit from the "Related Documents" field, regardless of whether it is paid or not.
Attention: In order for the supplier’s balance to be correct after a refund, the value of the supplier credit (note) must be used to pay off the bill. This can be done by adding a payment either from the sales document view page or from the credit note's page using "Apply credit".
Creating supplier credits via bills.
In order to save time, you can add a supplier credit note through the bill to which the credit is referred.
Just click on "(...)" and then select Create supplier credit.
Next, you are taken to the credit note's add page where the bill is automatically set as a related document, and the amounts are pre-filled to save time. However, at this stage you can edit all the fields of the document if you want to.
By saving as issued, the supplier credit is automatically issued and paid off if the purchase invoice was unpaid, using the due amount from the invoice. In other words, it automatically creates the payment transaction by applying credit, as we described above.
If the supplier credit has already been paid off, you will have to pay off the credit note manually by adding a new payment.
