Billing Block refers to stop billing of customer from system. User will not be able to create sale invoice for customer if customer is blocked.


Sometime when there are lots of customers then company cannot track it manually that which customer is not eligible for more material as they are already holding lots of payment. So, company can block the customers and while making sale invoice system will intimate user that customer is blocked.
