can I delete or edit a receiving voucher

I messed up, can I delete return vouchers too?


Thanks for posting your question in the Community, m_whorton,

I’m here to provide information about editing or deleting a receiving voucher in QuickBooks Point of Sale.

A receiving voucher is a posting transaction that affects your income and inventory in which this can only be reversed but can’t be deleted. Once completed it cannot be edited.

To reverse a receiving voucher, here’s what you’ll need to do:

  1. Go to the Receiving History list and find the "Bad" voucher and double click it. This brings it up in form view.
  2. Make note of the voucher number and then click Reverse Voucher in the lower right hand corner.
  3. A reversing document screen pops up. Click OK.
  4. This brings you back to the Receiving History List. Find the voucher number that you just reversed. Double click on it bringing it up in form view.
  5. At the top, click on the Copy Voucher button.
  6. This creates a duplicate of the original voucher but with today’s date. Make any changes that need to be made, including the date.
  7. Once you are satisfied that it is correct, click Save Only or Save & Print.

That’s it! If you have further questions, please feel free to reach back out. I’m always here to help.

People come to QuickBooks Learn & Support for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

  1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
  2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
  3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
  4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
  5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
