What's new in Microsoft Dynamics NAV Financials?


Microsoft Dynamics NAV is a robust business solution that continues to evolve to conform to the needs of its dedicated users. The latest enhancements offer quicker implementation and further ease of use for the end user with many features that are designed to support your businesses ambitions especially as pertains to the financial management system. Some of the more exciting enhancements include: 

Account Categories and Sub Categories:

There is now a set of accounts categories that you can map to the chart of accounts. This helps easily categorise accounts for reporting purposes.

  • You can use a predefined set or customise your own categories.
  • Account schedules are automatically updated when making changes to the mappings.
  • There is also a nice little overview screen, shown below, that groups the accounts by category.

In Item Categories, you can setup a hierarchy that inherits attributes, saving time in the setup and ensuring consistency. For example, any Bicycle category needs a Brand and Model Year.

Financial Reports:

The new Financial Management enhancements in Dynamics NAV allow you to work with ready-to-use financial statements and gain logical insights into the financial performance of your business. The new default Account Schedules makes it quick and intuitive to produce the financial reports that you need, including the four new reports that have been added through the Business Manager Role Centre:

  • Balance Sheet

  • Cash Flow Statement

  • Income Statement

  • Retained Earnings Statement

Use the wizard to help you complete most of your tasks, and take advantage of automatic daily or weekly data updates. In addition, more data sources are supported, including jobs and tax data.

  • Cash Flow Forecasts:

    You can understand your cash flow and can look ahead to predict the highs and lows in your cash balance, helping to improve margins and ensure profitability.
