View transactions

The report shows each invoice, credit note, overpayment or prepayment within the relevant period. It will show how long any invoices have been overdue (if any) along with the totals on each, less any credits and payments, and the amount currently owing to you.

The report displayed will be different depending on how you got there:

  • If you drilled into the invoices report by clicking on an invoice amount outstanding for a month on the Aged Receivables report, the report will display all unpaid invoices, credit notes, prepayments or overpayments for that contact for that month.
  • If you clicked on the contact name on the Aged Receivables report, the report will display all invoices, credit notes, prepayments or overpayments for that contact for all time.
  • If you have come from the contact entry, the report will display all invoices, credit notes, prepayments or overpayments for that contact.

You can narrow down the report to a particular time frame using the From and To date fields at the top of the report.

If you are using multi-currency, the report footnotes show the figures that were converted into your base currency and at what rate the conversion rate occurred. They also show where the rate was taken from (whether it was an XE rate or a rate entered by a user). Find out more on how multi-currency reports in Xero work.

Only approved invoices, bills and credit notes are recorded in your chart of accounts, and this is where the report draws its data from (items that have been approved and are awaiting payment).

Select individual transactions

Click on one of the links in the Invoices report (for example, due date) to view the original invoice. (Note: there will be more or less links available to you depending on your role.)

Select individual transaction from the invoices list by clicking on one of the links.

Prepayments and credit notes look like invoices in the report, with invoice number (prepayment) and credit note number (credit notes) showing in the Number column, but they will not have due dates like invoices. Overpayments will show any details from the Reference field in the Number column.
