Remove Tax on Invoice

Hi There,

Can someone please tell me - how to remove tax on an invoice that has been validated?

There must be a way to edit / remove the tax - before the invoice is sent out.

Also, How does a customer loginto the portal?

Thank you so much.


Hello WebOwner,

To remove the tax from a validated invoice, you need to cancel the invoice and set it to draft and then you can remove the tax from it, but the problem is when you validate the invoice, journal entries are posted, so system will not allow you to cancel the invoice.

In that case, you need to install the module "account_cancel", which is there in the module list. This will provide you an option in Account Journal as "Allow Cancelling Entries", once you set it to True, it will then allow you to cancel the validated invoice. On cancellation it will remove all the journal entries posted into the system. Then you can remove the tax from the invoice and validate again.

You need to set the "Allow Cancelling Entries" for the journal using which you validated the invoice.


If any payment is done for the invocie then you need to unreconcile those payment first and then the cancellation of the invoice.

Hope this helps !!.
