Paladin allows voids for all payment types. Voiding a transaction in Paladin creates a compensating transaction (return) to counteract the voided transaction. Paladin does not go back in time to edit historical transactions or GL exports, an inverse transaction is created. This is to prevent Fraud and ensure maximum traceability in the system. 

This article provides information and instruction on the following:
