  2. Select Create New.
  3. Enter the desired three digit number. Capital letters and numbers are both available. (Examples: REW, PFE, SLT)

Transaction type

The Transaction Type defines how the transaction code can be used within the system. For example, when renewing a policy through the policy dashboard, the transaction code must be configured as Transaction Type -> Renewal.

Any transaction code configured as Renewal or New Business will reset the current term premium amounts to the most recent transaction.

The transaction type for any transaction codes used for fees or premium finance invoice lines should always be configured as Non Premium.
