Meaning of remit

remit




If you send your client a bill for your consulting services, be sure to include your address so he knows where to remit the payment.

Remit means send back, and it has many uses. If you remit payment, you send it back to the person you owe it to. If you’ve been in prison for five years of a seven-year sentence but you’ve been on good behavior, a judge might remit the remainder of your sentence and let you go free.
