In your case you will have to delete the invoice to delete the charge.
Remember, simply because you create a charge, doesn't mean the balance
changed. Only when you apply the charge onto an invoice does the
change. Therefore, voiding the invoice, really voids the charge as

I don't think you have to change anything currently. Honestly, I don't
know the full extent of (*x.x) for negative, because SQL Server might
just intepret the parenthesis as grouping and not negative.
