Cancel Document

API allows taxpayers to cancel previously issued document.

Submit Documents Reject Document


Document cancellation is a way to correct submission errors that were noticed right away. Ideally cancellation is done even before the document is fully validated and recipient is notified. Therefore cancellation can be done only within limited time period since submission of the document on the eInvoicing system. This time limit is specific to document type and is returned by calling Get Document Type API and checking workflow parameters.

Cancelling period is configurable value, that is controlled by ETA & this is configured according to the law, please refer to the law for more information.

If cancellation time has passed, taxpayers can revert previously issued incorrect invoice trough submission of a credit note based on the previous invoice, for example.

Note! when you are logged in as intermediary, permissions that are granted by the taxpayer will be applied on your profile and this will control the functionalities that you'll be able to executed on behalf of the taxpayer you are representing.
