Tip of the Week: Reversing an Authorized and Submitted Sales Report

Accuracy is a key component of the sales report. If you discover that changes must be made to a transaction in a sales report that has already been submitted, you may still do so with the Authorize Reverse command. The Authorize Reverse feature allows you to electronically retrieve the sales report from ARC.

You may reverse the Authorized/Submitted status of a sales report as long as the reporting deadline has not passed. Reversing the authorized status of a report restores your ability to add, modify, or delete transaction information contained in the report. You may reverse a single sales report that has already been submitted to ARC at any time prior to the Tuesday 11:59 p.m. Eastern Time deadline. However, once you reverse the authorized status of a report, you are still responsible for authorizing the report again before the Tuesday 11:59 p.m. Eastern Time deadline. Follow these steps below to reverse the authorization of a sales report:

At the IAR home page:

  1. Click the box associated with the ARC Number to Reverse Authorize/Submit.
  2. Click the “R” box located under the Rev A/S heading.
  3. The Reverse Authorize Status screen will display.
  4. Type the confirmation number received from the original Authorize/Submit in the Enter Confirmation Number textbox.
  5. Type your password in the Enter Password textbox.
  6. Click the Submit button to reverse authorize/submit request.
  7. Click the Cancel button to reverse authorize/submit of the sales report and return to the sales report screen.
