Invoice/credit note date error


I'm currently working for a company and have come across an error where there is a credit note in one financial year and the invoice in the next. Has anyone come across something like this before and know how to fix it?

As an example, an invoice was raised and dated December 2021. It should have been sent out then but was accidently sent straight away. To fix this a credit note was raised but was dated December 2020. The credit note has gone through a VAT return and as the invoice was sent so it can't be changed and the tax point is correct.

Is there anyway to amend the accounts as they are showing as been down this year and up next? Our accounting system doesn't allow accounts receivable to be used in manual journals.
