Posting Groups #27 – Deferrals in Sales

Few days ago I’ve published how you can use Posting Groups in Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2016 when you have purchase where you use Deferrals. Now, I want to show you how it looks like when you use Deferrals in sales process. In my old post, you can find everything about using Posting Groups in standard sales process. Now, I’ll show difference. One of the main difference is that system doesn’t use inventory posting groups when posts sales invoice (the same as in purchase scenario).

In the following chart, you can understand how system uses Posting Groups when we have deferrals on Sales document:


When we post document and get Posted Sales Invoice, we will get the following G/L Entries. You can find completely description of them in the next table:


When you use Items and Resources, system will use Sales Account from General Posting Setup, but if you use G/L Account in the sales line, system will use this G/L Account you typed.

You can notice that we have more line amounts. Number of lines is based on number of period defined in Deferral Template. For each period, we have two lines (positive and negative). We have always first period lines, but other period lines are behind all entries, because they have not the same posting date. Their posting date is based on setup in Deferral Template.

And I’ve forgot one things in the last post. If you want to see all lines using Navigate, you have to delete Posting Date in Navigate page or if you didn’t it, you have to delete Posting Date from filters in General Ledger Entry.
