A rebill is a modified copy of an original invoice with adjusted charge amounts for various line items.
You cannot modify tax lines on a rebill. When a rebill is generated, the tax engine calculates any revised tax lines.
When you create a rebill, you can adjust the rate to an amount other than the original charge. Rebilling an invoice automatically generates a credit memo to zero out the original invoice charges so the rebill can then replace it with modified charges.
The rebill uses the current payment method assigned to the billing group. If the billing group has changed since the initial invoice was created, any refunds go to the current payment method.
Note: The best practice is to use the void invoice feature when you want to regenerate an invoice within the current billing cycle. For all previous billing cycles, we recommend that you only rebill invoices. Once you void an invoice you cannot rebill it
Rebill Configuration Settings
The following settings affect how rebills are processed. See each article for detailed information on these settings:
- Automatic Collection on Rebill: This setting determines whether a rebill automatically triggers a collection.
- Rebill Numbering: This setting controls whether rebills have a prefix or suffix added to the system-generated rebill number.
- Use Original Invoice Date for Rebill: This setting determines whether you use the original invoice date or the rebill date for dunning purposes. Rebill dates can be in the past, and this provides customers the option of using the rebill date or not.
Eligibility for Rebill
You cannot rebill any of the following types of invoices:
- Invoices that have any refund-related reversals
