Invoice cancellation and corrective invoice

Cancellation documents are invoices, which cancel previously transmitted invoices or credit notes. The following criteria must be met:

  • An invoice cancellation document must have its own unique invoice number.
  • The amounts of cancellation documents have the same sign as the original invoice.

ebInterface 4.1/4.2/4.3/5.0

In ebInterface 4.1, 4.2, 4.3 and 5.0 only a single invoice to be cancelled can be indicated.

  • The element /Invoice/CancelledOriginalDocument/InvoiceNumber must contain the number of the invoice to be cancelled. This value must correspond to the value of the element /Invoice/InvoiceNumber of the invoice to be cancelled.
  • The element /Invoice/CancelledOriginalDocument/InvoiceDate must contain the date of the invoice to be cancelled. This value must correspond to the value of the element /Invoice/InvoiceDate of the invoice to be cancelled.
  • The element /Invoice/CancelledOriginalDocument/DocumentType must contain the type of the invoice to be cancelled. This value must correspond to the value of the attribute /Invoice/@DocumentType of the invoice to be cancelled.
  • The element /Invoice/CancelledOriginalDocument/Comment may contain an optional comment, justifying the cancellation.

PEPPOL-UBL

In UBL 2.1 invoice cancellation is not supported. Instead a credit note has to be transmitted to balance a previously transmitted invoice. After that a new invoice can be transmitted.
