A reason code is a code that users can select to record the reason for a change or transaction, such as a write-down adjustment or payment reversal. You can use the Financial reasons form in Organization administration to create reason codes for a variety of financial modules, or you can alternatively open a reasons form from a specific module to set up reason codes for only that module. For more information, see Reasons (form).

You can also specify whether reason codes are required for a module. You specify reason code requirements in the parameters form for most modules.
