A credit note, also known as a credit memorandum or a credit memo, is an official legal document, just like an invoice or a purchase order, that suppliers provide to customers to notify the customer that credit is being applied to their account for any number of reasons. It’s a way to issue full or partial refunds for invoices that have already been issued or paid. You may issue a credit note to your customers because:

1) The customer returned goods or rejected services for any number of reasons.
2) There was an overpayment on the original invoice.
3) There was a mistake in price on the original invoice.
4) The goods were damaged in some way during transit.
