Its a deadly requirement.

What is the justification they are going to give to auditors if they cancel the invoice in this period which is posted in last year.

Not justified.

Hi Dhawal,

If you want to cancel it then change posting date.

It is not recommended to make any transaction posting to closed period. Therefore, your invoice cancellation posting date shall be chosen as on current posting period. If you insist on making such posting to closed period, then you will have to reopen the closed period using MMPI transaction. Yet, make sure you will read all related notes before re-opening.
