QB Issue Resolution:
You can do both.
Personally I would send the full invoice. Because if you pre-enter the expected witholding amount theres a chance the customer will still only send you 85% – leaving you short.
So send the full invoice, receive a cash payment against the invoice, then adjust the invoice by adding witholding to zero out the balance due.
