You can put Accounts payable payments on hold until a specified date, or indefinitely. You can hold all payments for a specific vendor or invoice. You might want to hold all payments for a vendor until a dispute is resolved, or you might want to hold the payment for an invoice until funds become available.

  1. Click Accounts payable > Common > Vendors > All vendors.

  2. Select a vendor account.

  3. On the Action Pane, click On hold.

  4. In the form that is displayed, select Payment in the Vendor hold field.

  5. In the Vendor hold release date field, enter the date when the payment hold should end, and payments should again be made to the vendor. If you do not enter a date, the payment hold lasts indefinitely.

  1. Click Accounts payable > Common > Vendor invoices > Pending vendor invoices. Double-click an invoice or click Invoice on the Action Pane to create a new invoice.

  2. In the Vendor invoice form, on the Action Pane, click Header view to view the complete header information for the invoice.

  3. In the Invoice payment release date field on the Approval FastTab, enter the date until which the invoice payment will be on hold. If you enter a date, the payment will not be generated until that date. This field is available only if the invoice is approved.

    To remove a payment hold, clear the value in this field. Any user can clear the payment release date, regardless of which user entered it.

  4. Enter an optional comment in the Release date comment field.
