It will be available just one week after general availability of NAV 2017. But, this availability will be for US and Canada market. I’m still not sure, but I expect Dynamics 365 Finance for Europe market in Q1 or Q2 next year. I cannot wait this moment because I strongly believe this is a product which will make a huge impact on global ERP market.

OK, tomorrow is new day and the start of new conference – Directions EMEA. We will wait and I’m sure we will get some new interesting things from beginning.

Bank Data Conversion Service for NAV 2015

Few months ago, when I wrote about Posting Groups and Payment Posting, I got a few comments about some related topic. This topic was a Bank Data Conversion Service for Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2015 as part of the improved reconciliation capabilities. This service hosted on Microsoft Azure is delivered by AMC Consult A/S and provides automatic processes fro electronic payments, payment reconciliation and bank account reconciliation in NAV.

I didn’t have enough time to write about this topic, but now Microsoft has published article about this topic. Sorry to my followers because I didn’t finish it faster then Microsoft, but I can help them with relations to information. You can find a lot of information and additional documents (pptx and videos) on Partner Source: https://mbs.microsoft.com/partnersource/global/readiness-training/readiness-training-news/BankDataConversionServicebyAMCConsult.

Posting Groups #13 – Finance Charge and Reminders

When we have overdue sales invoices, we usually can use Reminders and/or Finance Charge Memos. Both of these documents increases debits of our customers. We don’t post these documents, but we issue them. But, these issued documents also can make G/L entries.

On the first flowchart, you can see how system uses posting groups on Finance Charge Memos.

Results of this issued document in G/L entries are as following:

Now, on the second flowchart, you can see how system uses posting groups on Reminder. It uses very similar as on Finance Charge Memos, but fees on Finance Charge Memos lines are based only on Terms, while fees on Reminders can be based on Terms and Levels.
