Hey there,
So I have a situation I need help with. I'm working on a project that I took a deposit on. There's still the rest of the project fee to collect on. Additionally, there's a scheduled invoice that goes out monthly, for the next 12 months. Each invoice is getting paid from the the Deposit, which isn't what I want. The deposit should only go toward the remaining amount of the project.

    Hey Alex,

    I'd simply create the invoice for the remainder of the project, then apply the deposit to that. Don't send it to your client until you're ready to collect. You might even want to post-date the invoice for when you anticipate the project to end.

    That way the money will be accounted for, and not be applied to your scheduled invoices.

    Let me know if that helps.

    I too have encountered situations where I've received a deposit for one project from a client, when I had outstanding invoices for another project with the same client, and the deposit gets applied to the wrong project, which I find frustrating
