There are two options to update a validated invoice:

  1. Create a credit note to semantically "undo" the invoice
  2. Cancel the invoice, then Set to draft and update it. Afterwards validate it again.

For the 2nd option you have to

  • install module account_cancel
  • activate flag Allow Cancelling Entries for the desired journal (e.g. "Sales Journal") in menu "Accounting / Configuration / Journals / Journals"

"Create a credit note to semantically "undo" the invoice" Is it not possible to credit a credit note for part of the invoice? E.g. create a credit note for 10% of the invoice value, then reconcile that amount against the invoice?
