Is there a Delete Function?


Invoices can be both archived and deleted from Deskera Books.

Archive this Invoice means that the invoice is canceled or voided. All archived documents can be viewed under the Archived Tab. You can always reopen canceled Invoices by clicking on the 'Reopen' button to restore them.

Do note that Invoices that you have fulfilled completely and marked as received are also moved to the Closed tab. However, these Invoices are marked as 'Completed' instead of 'Canceled'.

Can I Delete the Payments Made in the Invoice?

Assuming that you accidentally mark an invoice as received, and you wish to revert back the payment, yes you can do so on Deskera Books.

In the Invoice document, you can delete the payment that you have marked as received by clicking on the bin icon under the Payment Records at the right hand side of the page.


Once you have successfully deleted the invoice, the system will automatically remove the Journal Entry record.
