A Credit Note is a commercial document that a supplier produces for a customer to notify the customer of credit applied to the customer's account & Invoice.

Typically a Credit Note is created because:

  • the customer returned goods or rejected services
  • the goods were damaged in some way, usually during transit
  • there was a mistake regarding the price in the original Invoice
  • the customer overpaid the original Invoice

How to create a Credit Note

Usually, the supplier will reference an Invoice number for a specific Credit Note.

You need to find this Invoice in Precoro and create a Credit Note for that respective Invoice.


  • Credits increase the available budget amount from an initial Invoice;
  • Payment will be added to the initial Invoice if the unpaid amount is more than the credit or the same;
  • If your initial Invoice is fully paid, the credits will be added to the supplier's credit balance, and you will be able to pay another Invoice using the credit.
  • If your initial Invoice is partially paid, the credits will be split between the initial Invoice and the supplier's credit balance.

How to pay an Invoice with supplier's credits

If you have a credit balance with a supplier you will be able to pay with credit.

How to cancel a Credit Note

You can cancel a Credit Note if there are no payments to be made with credit. Even if there are some credit payments, you can cancel them and cancel the Credit Note.
