6. For paying the rest of the bill amount, you can create an identical bill in Peakflo by following the steps in this article.

To differentiate the bills from one another and not have trouble with the chart of accounts, you can add suffixes to the end of the bill numbers.
Example:
The first bill for partial payment can be B0023-1
The second bill for the remaining payment can be B0023-2

This way you can identify both are for the same bill B0023 and the bill has been fully paid.


6. Then just like the first bill, you can send it for approval and after it gets fully approved, the remaining amount of the bill will be paid based on the due date. (steps 3 to 6).
