Fixed assets disposal credit note functionality allows users in legal entities in Estonia and Latvia to create a credit note for a free text invoice with sales of a fixed asset and then post it. To create a credit note to reverse a free text invoice that was generated for the sale of a fixed asset, complete the following steps:

  1. Click Accounts receivable > Invoices > All free text invoices.
  2. Select the free text invoice that you are creating a credit note for.
  3. On the Action Pane, in the Cancel group of the Invoice tab, click Create credit note. Note: When you create a credit note, you must include each transaction line from the free text invoice.
  4. Select the Create corrective lines check box to add a reversal line and a corrective line to the credit note for each transaction line in the original free text invoice.
