Tip of the Week - Error Rollovers in IAR

Rollovers occur when an IAR sales report has been submitted with errors, or when there are errors in an unsubmitted sales report and the submission deadline has passed. Once the submission deadline has passed, the report cannot be reversed and any errors contained in that report will show on the next available report as 'Out of Period' (O status). This process continues each week until all errors from previously submitted reports are fixed.

When an error rolls over 3 PEDs or more, the ticket information is forwarded to Ticket Resolution Services (TRS) and a fee of $34.00 is applied to each ticket. Agents may also receive a debit memo from the validating carrier for tickets submitted out of period.

To prevent errors from rolling over, review your IAR Report daily and correct all errors before submitting the report.

NOTE: It is important that all errors be corrected before the report deadline has passed.
