Credit Reasons can be used to report on why credits are happening in your business. Every credit that is completed can be given a reason to help;

  • transparency and
  • aid your audit trail,
  • as well as improve your business (i.e. how much money did I credit customer due to keying errors this month?). 

They are used when entering credit notes, and can include suggestions such as 'faulty good' or 'change of mind'. The credit reason is recorded on the line for the item being credited or returned.
