QB Issue Resolution:

No, not really

An invoice is a final sale the full amount would post to income, and then the monthly payments would too, doubling it

I would suggest customizing an estimate or sales order and call it a pro-foprma invoice, those forms are non posting.

Then the monthly invoice will post income as it should be done, and yes you can set up a recurring scheduled invoice
