How Do I Correct an Accounts Payable Voucher?

Several types of corrections can be made to Accounts Payable Vouchers. The three most common requests are identified and discussed below. For other correction inquiries, please contact the Corrections Department directly.

Payment made to incorrect vendor

If the payment has not been cashed by the incorrect vendor, please refer to Payment Cancellations under Correction Services. The department will need to create another document to pay the correct vendor.

If the payment has been cashed by the incorrect vendor, please submit a request for a reimbursement/refund from that vendor. Refer to reductions to expenses for information on what to do once the reimbursement/refund is received. The department will need to create another document to pay the correct vendor.

Transfer expenses to another account

Please refer to Transfer of Charges between accounts under Correction Services.

Changing expense object code
