Create non-return creditsLast updated on 09/14/2022
Non-return credit is a credit created without an association to inventory or returns. Profitability estimates are more accurate when you include non-return credits and non-purchase order (PO) bills in your job costs.
Note: When you create a return, a corresponding credit is automatically created.
Note: Job Costing breaks down costs on jobs and projects so you can learn about payroll costs, equipment and material costs, and opportunities. For more information, see Run the Job Costing tool. When you add a non-return credit to a job, it is displayed on the Job Costing screen.
