Clarification on India e-Invoicing rules on cancellations/credit and debit memos


Based on current India e-invoicing requirement, we understand that the following “rules” on cancellations/credit debit memos will have to be in place:

  • Cancellations of any billing documents have to be done within 24 hours of the billing documents
  • Anything that is > 24 hours, the company will need to create credit/debit orders

We also understand that its inevitable that we have to do SAP cancellation in the system after the 24 hours time frame due to system issue.

The more common issues experienced to date are:

  • Accounting doc posting failure
  • SKU issues

Hence, we’d like to understand:

  • Can S/4 allow users to correct such system issues without any cancellations in SAP?
  • If cancellations still have to take place in S/4 after 24 hours time frame, how can we be compliant for India on the eDocuments part?
