Edit a paid bill

Edit a bill (sometimes called accounts payable) that's been fully paid. If it's a repeating bill, only the current transaction changes. You can delete or void the bill template to stop all future repeats.

What you can do

  • Remove payments and credits.
  • Edit fields that don't affect the bill total, such as the due date. You'll have to make VAT adjustments using a different method.
  • Assign expenses to a customer.
Talk to your accountant or bookkeeper if you're unsure about editing a paid bill.
