you for your comment.
in most cases a simple CreditNote should suffice to cancel
or correct a FreightInvoice.
in some cases a ‘CreditNote’ is the original document, e.g.
for commission invoices, where the full shipment data is
useful to identify the transport.
am currently building ‘Invoice’ documents with the
‘Shipment’ tag in the extensions area, because not many UBL
solutions are capable of handling a FreightInvoice.
presence of the Shipment tag does allow a receiver to fairly
easily convert the ‘Invoice’ to a ‘FreightInvoice’.
it is not possible to do the same with a CreditNote that
contains the Shipping tag in the extension.
CEN-BII and OpenPEPPOL are not using the FreightInvoice.
The profile 5 "Billing" also has a precise rule for invoices
and credit notes:
tbr14-052 - The total amount of the document and due amount
cannot be negative.
The Billi profile also uses two UBL documents:
It is true there is not a FreightCreditNote however, so
question is, if a Carrier needs to send a Credit Note to a
Freight Forwarder which is related to a container freigth,
does he have all information required ?
The generic CreditNote of UBL should be sufficient usually
because it should reference a previous Invoice where all
industry details are already provided. So if the previous
invoice was an UBL-FreigthInvoice-2.1 all should be fine. I
would say it is important to reference the credited invoice
and maybe it is not strictly necessary to provide (repeat)
all industry-specific details such as shipment info in the
it is my opinion however....

FreightInvoice is a
special case of the Invoice document, mandatory including
a ‘Shipment’ tag to include transportation details.
With CEN-BII and
openPeppol BIS profiles moving to profile 5, their
recommendation now is to send a CreditNote document for
invoices with negative amounts / corrective / cancellation
invoices, instead of indicating inside the Invoice
document (with the DocumentType tag) whether the Invoice
is an invoice or a creditnote.
In that logic,
shouldn’t there be a UBL document FreightCreditNote?
