Viewing invoices

The Invoices page (Sales menu > Invoices) lists all of the invoices you’ve entered into MYOB. In the top-right corner of the screen you'll see a snapshot of total value of your invoices, the balance due and how much is overdue.

Details of each invoice are shown, including invoice number, customer and amount due.

To find an invoice, use the filters across the top of the page.

  • Open (grey) — for invoices that haven't been paid and not yet overdue

  • Open (pink) — for invoices that haven't been paid and are overdue

  • Emailed — the invoice email was sent successfully

To view an invoice's activity

Example invoice activity


Why hasn't a customer received an eInvoice that shows 'eInvoice sent' in its activity?


The customer may not be registered for eInvoicing. Businesses must register to be able to receive eInvoices and invoice responses. You can check the Peppol Directory to see if they are registered to receive eInvoices.

If the customer is registered to receive eInvoices and passed Peppol validation but still not receiving your eInvoice there may be a rounding issue in the amounts of the invoice.
You may be able to fix this by changing the tax settings in the eInvoice.

If the eInvoice amount is Tax inclusive, try changing it to Tax exclusive and send it again.
