  • Calculation Mistakes: Errors in the total invoice calculation, including incorrect application of taxes or discounts.
  • Incorrect Details: Errors in vendor information, purchase order numbers, or product specifications.
  • Duplicate Invoices: Issuing the same invoice multiple times, which may cause unnecessary payments.
