How do set up a retainage payable account that so that you can get the amount out of your accounts payable ledger?

Greetings @treywork29!

 

You can create a new retainage payable account on your Chart of Accounts. Let me show you how:

  1. Go to the Accounting page, then Chart of Accounts.
  2. Click New.
  3. Under the Account Type drop-down menu, select Other Current Liabilities.
  4. On the Detail Type drop-down menu, choose Other Current Liabilities.
  5. In the Name field, enter Retainage Payable.
  6. Click Save and Close.

I've also attached an article you can read to learn more about creating new accounts: How to Create a New Parent Account or Sub-account?

 

For handling and tracking retainage payable amounts, I recommend contacting your accountant. He/she knows best and can help you further.

 

Let me know if you have any other questions about QuickBooks Online. I'll be glad to help.
