Goal

Invoice Validation checks the matching, tax, period status, exchange rate, and distribution information for invoices you enter.

It checks the supplier site to determine which invoice tolerance template to use.
If no invoice tolerance template is specified, tolerance checking is not performed.
If an invoice tolerance template is specified, Invoice Validation will check against the specific invoice tolerances template stored in the Invoice Tolerances window to determine if the invoice falls within the defined tolerances and automatically applies holds to exception invoices.

If an invoice has a hold, you can release the hold by correcting the exception that caused Invoice Validation to apply the hold by updating the invoice or the purchase order, or changing the invoice tolerances. Then resubmit Invoice Validation to release the hold.

In the Invoice Holds tab, you can manually release certain invoice holds, even if you have not resolved the matching error condition.
