How do I Remove Credit from a Customer in QuickBooks?

In QuickBooks, credit memos are used whenever a customer is entitled to a refund for any kind of product or service and acquires store credit.

Such credits arise in the Accounts Receivable section and are recorded in the Customer Center.

It is a crucial point to note that credit memos shoot up the available credit in a particular customer account. QuickBooks allows you to either void or deletes the particular credit memo to eliminate /delete or remove the specific credit available for the client.

It should be also taken into consideration that voiding a credit memo lowers the available credit; however, it still leaves a proper record of the transaction history for all kinds of reference purposes.

Note: Credit memos are recorded and noted in the particular Accounts Receivable register of customers and the company Accounts Receivable registers as well. Hence, when the credit memo from one register is deleted, it automatically deletes it from the other register too.
