Invoice & Credit Note Dates

According to South African legislation, Invoices & Credit Notes should both follow chronologically and numerically.  Thus Invoice & Credit Notes have these rules applied to them, that limits you in certain ways:

  • Only the latest instance can be deleted.
  • New documents can only be created with a date later or equal to your previous latest used date.
  • In certain instances you will not be allowed to edit the date of an Invoice or Credit Note.
