Reject Document

API allows taxpayer that received an invalid invoice to reject it.

Cancel Document Get Recent Documents


Document rejection is a way to quickly notify the issuer that that there are some problems with the document they have issued so that correction can be done as soon as possible. Rejection is allowed for recipient of the document 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.

If allowed rejection time since issuance has passed but the document is still considered incorrect, receivers need to notify issuers and they need to revert previously issued incorrect invoice trough submission of a credit note for example.

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

Rejection action for any document can happen only once.

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.
