What Is the Difference between Debit Memo and Credit Memo?

The main difference between a debit memo and a credit memo is that a debit memo is issued by the buyer and the credit memo issued by the seller or supplier.

A credit memo reduces the total balance of a buyer’s account. The process is usually started when a buyer issues a debit memo planning to reduce his balance with a discount due either to damaged or wrong goods. The buyer would wait for the seller to issue a credit memo verifying agreement to the debit memo.
