How to close a partially paid invoice?

How to close a partially paid invoice without creating a refund for the pre-tax amount?

Suppose the products price total $100 and the taxes amount to $15. The invoice totals $115. The customer sends a check for $110 and for whatever reason we want to close the invoice as fully paid. If we go to make a refund then we have to manually calculate a pre-tax amount so that the refund totals $5.

Is there a better way where we wouldn't have to do this manual calculation?

Register the partial payment then reconcile the partial payment with the invoice and choose to assign the difference as a writeoff. Do not create a refund.

Go to the customer's form view. In the More menu, select Receivables & Payables. Select the invoice and its partial payment. In the More menu, select Reconcile. In the next window, select Writeoff or another as appropriate.
