  4. Navigate to Exceptions tab.
  5. You can see the exception.


There is a discount or  surcharge or reduction in the invoice and that is missing in credit memo.


You can see that the net amount in the credit memo and supplier invoice is same and correct at item level. However in the Deduction and Surcharges sub tab, you can see the price difference comparing both  Invoice an credit memo. Hence the exception appears.

So you should enter the same discount or  surcharge or reduction  in Credit memo that you see in invoice ,This clears the exception and you can post the credit memo.
