Taxes & Invoicing

What is a credit note?

A credit note is a form or letter sent by a seller to a buyer, stating that a certain amount has been credited to the buyer's account. A credit note is issued in various situations to correct a mistake, such as when (1) an invoice amount is overstated, (2) a correct discount rate is not applied, (3) goods spoiled within a guaranty period, or (4) they do not meet the buyer's specifications and are returned. Credit notes are important for your accounting to make sure there is a legal record of any refund.
