You can delete invoices from the Invoices page, accessible from the Sales menu. If there's a payment against the invoice, you'll need to delete the payment before deleting the invoice.

A deleted invoice is removed completely from MYOB Essentials.

Cancelling invoices

If you'd like to cancel an invoice without deleting it (to retain a record of the invoice), create a credit for the invoice amount, then apply the credit to the invoice.

This closes the invoice without affecting your account balances.

    A confirmation message appears.
  4. Click Yes to delete the invoice. The Invoices page reappears.

Can't delete an invoice?

If the Delete button is inactive, it means the invoice has a payment against it so can't be deleted. You'll first need to delete the payment (click the payment to view its details then click Delete).
