Cancel Receipts Using Manage Requisitions in NUFinancials

This guide shows a User how to Cancel Receipts from the Manage Requisitions page.

A receipt cannot be canceled if it has already been matched to a voucher and purchase order.

Receipts can be canceled from Manage Requisitions or Add/Update Receipts. These steps focus on Manage Requisition page. Manage Requisitions is used to cancel receipts, whether they contain one receipt line or many. Use Add/Update Receipts when you need to cancel one or more receipt lines, but not all receipt lines.

Why do you cancel a receipt?

Reasons for canceling a receipt include:

  • You entered a receipt in error.
  • You may need to cancel a receipt prior to submitting a change order or to a purchase order being rolled into a new fiscal year. (If you need to re-apply or enter the receipt after the change order or roll to the next fiscal year takes place, you must use Add/Update Receipts.)
  • If you need to cancel just one or more lines of a receipt containing multiple lines, use Add/Update Receipts. 


Login to NUFinancials: > Login > Requisition tile > Manage Requisitions.
