What is an invoice payment? #
An invoice payment is the amount of money paid by a client or contractor against a previously issued invoice. The amount due and invoice payment almost always match, but there can be times when a client disputes an invoice and pays less. You’ll want to make sure you catch such disputes early!
Also known as: Remittance
Invoice payment process #
A contractor send an invoice for her/his services to a customer. The customer reviews the invoice, and, satisfied that it is fair and consistent with the contract, sends back a check for the full amount. That invoice payment is received by the contractor and reconciled against the outstanding invoice. The invoice is then marked paid and closed.
