Creating a Sales Order is useful when stock needs to be decremented upon the sale of goods. Sometimes a simple invoice for services or other non-stock related transaction is all that is needed.
This how to describes the process of creating an invoice directly from the accounting module.
NOTE: Keep in mind that products can be added to an invoice however, unlike a Sales Order, it will not automatically create a delivery order and will not decrement stock.
Create an Invoice
Open Accounting → Customers → Invoices
Add the customer
Add the invoice date
Add the product (or service) (optional), label, account, quantity, price.
The meeting room in this case is a service.
Spruce Up an Invoice
Sections and notes can be added to the invoice.
It wont appear here but a sub-total will appear under each of the section on the customer’s copy of the invoice.
