Re: Void an Invoice? (not really "Cancel")

Hey Alexey,

no, you do it from the form view of the invoice you want to cancel, here are instructions for version 12.0:

In the invoice form view click on Add Credit Note:

Choose the option to cancel and give a reason:

This will result in a canceled invoice thru the balancing with the just created credit note. The invoice number does persist:

I hope that is now clear, or do you have still questions / issues with the process?

Cheerio from Germany,

Main issue with Odoo’s cancel of invoice that it “hides” the invoice number that has been allocated, which is getting confusing.

Xero void is cancel. They just differentiate between 2 types of cancel. Cancelling a Draft they call Delete, Cancelling an Open invoice they call Void.

Not sure how it plays in v13 new model, but in Xero Invoices aren't really invoices, they are journal entries and Odoo has always liberally copied Xero so maybe the same.

Dear community,

I’m coming from Xero software for invoicing to Odoo, and in Xero there was a feature to void an invoice where it stays non-editable, yet no longer requires any payments. Use-case: invoice was sent to customer but for some reason the deal was cancelled.
Is it a thing in Odoo?

Kind regards,
