Bus/Financial - Accounting / Inventory / credit notes
|German term or phrase: Wertgutschrift v Gutschrift|
|"Gutschriften werden erteilt, bevor die Rücksendung angekommen ist bzw. ohne dass es zur Rücksendung kommt (Wertgutschrift)"|
The distinction is explained at http://www.vse.at/support/faq_u.html
but I can't trace down the English equivalent.
Value credit (note) comes up with a blank on Google. Nor can I find it in the SAP glossaries.

Value credit note v. Credit note
Credit note: A credit note is a monetary instrument issued by a seller that allows a buyer to purchase an item or service from that seller on a future. Credit notes may be issued by a seller as a goodwill gesture to a buyer who wishes to return previously purchased merchandise (instead of cash payment) in circumstances where the original sales agreement did not include an explicit refund policy for returned items. In such circumstances, a credit note of value equal to the price of the returned items is usually issued allowing the buyer to exchange his purchase for other items available with the seller.
Value credit note:
I am pasting relevent portion of an offer from a hotel:
Valid of 7.1. - 3.4.04 and of 16.10. - 18.12.04
With a minimum stay of of 2 weeks you receive a value credit note from 100, - € per person (for each extension week plus 50, - €).
You can redeem this value credit note in our restaurant for beverages, coffee, cake etc. or in our Med. bath department as well as Kosmetik oasis.
(Used up value credit notes cannot be refunded unfortunately!)
Credit notes can be converted into cash by way of adjustment (deduction) in subsequent orders whereas "Value credit note" can be used only for purchase of the items offered by the seller. Otherwise it lapses.

|Asker: Thanks RR. However, I'm fairly clear already on what a credit note is. I'm specifically looking for the correct term to distinguish a Wertgutschrift from a Gutschrift.|
