New Feature: Write off Invoices


We’ve added a new feature to Harvest, the ability to write off an invoice with an outstanding balance. On an open invoice, under “More Actions”, you can select the option “Write off Invoice”. A notes field will pop-up, allowing you to make a record of why this amount of money is being written-off. This option will cancel the remaining balance of the invoice, and the invoice will appear as “Written-off”.

You can also run a report to see which invoices you have written-off by going to Invoices > Report, and checking the box labeled “Written-off”. This feature will simplify your bookkeeping and remove outstanding debts from your balance sheet. In many cases, the debts incurred from written-off invoices can be treated as expenses and deducted from your taxes, so ask your accountant if this applies to your business.

Many of the new features and improvements we add to Harvest come directly from you, the Harvest users. What other improvements can we add to Harvest invoicing to help simplify your billing? Please let us know via the support form.

  • Woohoo! I’ve been requesting this for a little while now, but given your record, kept faith in the team adding this option – and you have!

    Thinking back to my wish list I provided perhaps just 4 months ago, I think there is now only one outstanding item: detailed reports that generate income figures in addition to time reporting. I’m sure that’s in the works ;-)

    Thanks guys, impressed as always!

  • Having said that, it appears this feature isn’t working just yet… Entering details and pressing the ‘Write off Invoice’ button results in no change to the invoice. Plus the layout of the Invoice Report form seems broken.

  • Yay! This is such a usefull addition to Harvest invoicing, thanks for making your app even better!

  • @Paul are you still having problems with the feature? You shouldn’t. If so, get in touch with us:

    Thanks for the comments!

  • @Danny – The issue I encountered was sorted quickly and politely as usual, thanks to Shawn and Dee – so it’s all working wonderfully again.
