English translation:... together with payments on account, entered in ...
Explanation:
It is a little unclear for me whether payments on account must also be reported separately or not, but logically the credit notes alone are probably meant because of the embezzlement possibility. It would also be logical that both should be credited to the proper account.

Using Hamblock/Wessels – Großwörterbuch Wirtschaftsenglisch, Reinhart von Eichborn – Der kleine Eichborn, Zahn – Wörterbuch Bank- und Börsenwesen, Romain – Wörterbuch der Rechts- und Wirtschaftssprache and Dietl/Lorenz – Wörterbuch für Recht, Wirtschaft und Politik, the sentence could be translated as follows:

"Credit notes issued must be reported separately and, together with partial payments / payments on account (possibly also "down payments"), (must be) (correctly / properly) allocated / assigned / credited / referred /matched / allotted (to / under / in the proper / correct account / customer / customer account)."

I would choose:

"Credit notes issued must be reported separately and, together with payments on account, entered in the correct customer account."

(the term "installment payments" is normally not used for such transactions between businesses, usually only for transactions between a retailer or bank and a retail customer)

Explanation:
The term seems to be spelled somewhat differently in your text; maybe that's why you couldn't find it.
