I second this. But we must always look at the business issues also. In
many places the VAT is paid to the govt every month so there is no way
you can void an invoice after that. Voiding invoices should be done
within a day or a few days from emission, and only of customer has not
accepted or received the good or service. From then on, it cannot be
voiding, but rather a matter or returns, warranty claims and so forth.

Sounds good.
