Add negative value items to sales invoices

In Sage 50 Accounts V23 and above, you can add negative value items to product invoices using the special product codes S1, S2 and S3.  You can also add negative lines to service invoices.

  2. Click the next available item line, then for a service invoice, enter some details and press F3. For a product invoice, click the down arrow and double click a special product or type in the code and click Return.
  3. Click the Make Negative check-box.
