Changing Item Code In paid Invoice

Started by Suzanne Kuhn -   in Accounting

Is there a way to change the item code in an invoice after it has been paid?
Hi Micheal,

When the invoice has been approved, send or paid you will not be able to change the item code. There are minimal things that you can change when the invoice has been paid. You may refer to this link: https://central.xero.com/s/article/Edit-an-invoice#Editapaidinvoice

Hope that helps.

Hi Michael

If you have the advisor role you can easily change this using the find and recode option without the need to undo the payment attached.

Heya just wanted to jump in here and confirm for anyone else seeing this post.

There's no way to edit the item code on a paid invoice in Xero. The link Zyra's added above has a bit of detail on this 😊

To make this change on a paid invoice, you'll need to remove the payment, edit the invoice to add in the relevant item and then re-add the payment.
