Hold Code

The Hold Code field in the HQ Hold Codes form

You must set up at least one hold code to be used for retainage.

When creating hold codes, use up to 10 characters to give a name that will help you readily identify the reason that payment is being withheld when you assign this to an open payables invoice.

Hold codes prevent invoices from being paid until the hold code is released. If this hold code is added to an invoice, it is in addition to any hold code automatically placed on the transaction (or any portion of the transaction) because of retainage or a vendor hold.


Enter a description of this hold code, up to 30 characters.
