Just to chip in with £0.02 - couldn't you create an "income" account, call it
something like income:cancelled_invoices so that this regular occurance can
be easily totalled, and taken off your tax bills, as an expense. (you may
need a matching expense account, to make things hit zero? - would need to
play a bit to figure that out)
You said in your original post that you didn't want to touch items from
previous fiscal year - yet here you say you need to completely remove an item
from A/R - that seems a contradiction to me?
Possibly the simple way is that you could unpost/edit/repost the invoice so
that the "income" is zero, but the invoice still exists?
