    This functionality used to work fine on Classic invoicing but has not been carried across to the new invoicing module which is being mandated from 1st September 2024. We import our invoices from our sales system then in the classic system simply the sales order number from the Invoice number field and Xero adds the next system invoice number. Simple and efficient. Not so on the New Invoicing module - you can't delete a prepopulated invoice number and get Xero to put the next system invoice number in !

    I agree with the other comments on this forum - I have raised the issue with Xero Helpdesk and been referred here - which is disappointing as historically I don't find Xero makes much reference to the ideas forum.

    I have reminded Xero that it is a legal requirement in the UK for VAT invoices to be sequentially numbered (with no gaps in the sequence) - hence the functionality provided in classic invoicing.

    I don't accept that a manual system of self-maintaining invoice numbers or a workaround with a plug in like Zapier (at cost) is acceptable for such basic functionality.

    Please Xero - don't go backwards - reinstate system invoice numbering on the new invoice module.
