In Poland, a correction note is a special document that corrects errors in the document header of a purchase document. It is prepared and issued to meet regulatory requirements.

For example, a vendor may issue a sales document with an incorrect address or VAT identification number. You must accept and post the document as a purchase invoice. Later, however, you must issue a correction note to the vendor. The correction note should describe the error and provide the correct data.
