Method 2. Move partial unapplied deposit

This method helps to move values from unapplied deposits to different clients.

This is the most favorable method for accounting matters.

Having a deposit applied and some value left that needs to be reassigned to a different client or clients. Please, follow the next steps:

Let's consider a deposit value of $200 registered in client A, from which $100 was applied to an invoice and the $100 left value has to be moved to another customer, client B.

1. Apply the left deposit value to an invoice

Client A has $100 in favor which has to be moved to client B. Please, apply this value to an invoice of client A.

2. Apply a debit note to the previous invoice

It cancels out the previously applied left value($100), leaving the client with the correct balance.

3. Apply a credit note to an invoice of the other client

It gives the client the corresponding deposit value through the credit.
