Set or Release Retainage on an Owner Invoice (Legacy)

 Legacy Content
This page details the legacy owner invoice experience. A modernized experience is also available. 

Objective

To set or release retainage for line items on an owner invoice with the Invoicing tool. 

Background

You can use the steps below to:

  • Set the Retainage Amount. Enter a percentage to calculate the withholding amount. This percentage will be applied to all of the line items on the invoice. For example, enter 10% to withhold 10% on each invoice line item. 
  • Release the Retainage Amount. Enter a percentage to calculate the amount to release on the invoice. This moves the calculated amount from the 'Currently Retained' column to the 'Released this Period' column in the prime contract. You can adjust this amount to perform a partial or full release as follows: 
    • A partial release indicates an amount is being withheld. For example, you would enter 50% if you are halfway through the project and your invoice is for a progress payment.
    • A final release means you are releasing the full amount and retainage is no longer being withheld. For example,  you would enter 100% after all of a project's contractual obligations are substantially complete and your invoice is for final payment.

Things to Consider

  • Required User Permissions:
    • 'Admin' level permissions on the Prime Contracts tool.
