Use this form to create a free text customer invoice or a value-added tax (VAT) invoice. On a free text invoice, the lines include main accounts, free text descriptions, and a sales amount that you enter yourself. You cannot enter an item number on this kind of invoice. You must enter the appropriate sales tax information.

On an ordinary customer invoice, one or more sales orders are related, item numbers are specified and posted to the general ledger, and subledger journal entries are not available. On a free text invoice, a main account for the sale is indicated on each invoice line, which can be distributed to multiple ledger accounts. Also, the customer balance is posted to the summary account from the posting profile that is used for the free text invoice.


After you post a free text invoice, a copy is saved for your information. You can no longer change the invoice unless the Free text invoice correction configuration key is selected. For more information, see Correct a posted free text invoice.
