Set up and maintain the customer table. Post sales transactions in journals and manage receivables; register customers and manage receivables using general journals. Together with Multiple Currencies, this granule can post sales transactions and manage receivables in multiple currencies for each customer. Receivables are integrated with the General Ledger and Inventory.
Set up Calendars with working and non-working days. Assign a base calendar to customers, vendors, locations, companies, shipping agent services, and the service management setup - and make changes to each as necessary. Calendar entries will be used in date calculations on sales orders, purchase orders, transfer orders, production orders, service orders, and requisition and planning worksheets.
Work with sales prices and sales line discounts connected with Specific Campaigns. After you have activated the prices/discounts, any customer or contact related to a company currently in a segment associated with a given campaign can access the price/discount associated with that campaign. Prices are valid for the life of the campaign or until you decide to deactivate them. When you create a sales document or service order, the campaign price/discount is included among the pricing reductions available when Microsoft Dynamics NAV chooses the price to retrieve on the line.
Promise accurate order shipment and Delivery dates to customers as based on item current and future availability. When items are not available to meet a customer’s requested delivery date, calculate the earliest shipment date as either an available-to-promise date that is based on upcoming uncommitted supply or a capable-to-promise date, a date when items can become available should they be replenished.
Calculate Invoice Discounts automatically. Set up any number of invoice discount terms, including a certain minimum amount, discount percentage, and/or a service charge. The discount is calculated on the individual item lines and becomes part of the net sum of the invoice. Calculations can be done in both local and foreign currencies.
Manage flexible Item Price Discount Structures that differentiate between special agreements with individual customers and customer groups, and are conditioned by such parameters as minimum quantity, unit of measure, currency, item variant and time period. The best, as based on the highest discount, unit price is calculated for the sales line when the order details meet the conditions specified in the sales line discounts table.
Manage Sales Quotes, blanket sales orders, and sales order processes. Setting up an invoice directly differs from setting up a sales order in which the quantity available is adjusted as soon as an amount is entered on a sales order line. Quantity available is not affected by an invoice until the invoice is posted.
Use the Sales Order Management granule to:
• Manage partial shipments.
• Ship and invoice separately.
• Create prepayment invoices for the sales order.
• Use quotes and blanket orders in the sales phase. (Quotes and blanket orders do not affect inventory figures.)
The Sales Return Order Management granule enables you to create a sales return order, so you can compensate a customer for wrong or damaged items. Items can be received against the sales return order. Create a partial return receipt or combine return receipts on one credit memo. You can also link sales return orders with replacement sales orders.
Set up Multiple Shipping Agents (for example, UPS, DHL, external carriers, or your own carrier) and relate their services (express, overnight, standard) with shipping time. Associate default shipping agents and their services with individual customers or specify those details on sales orders and transfer orders to improve accuracy of order promising.
Calculate GST and set up individual tax areas for each customer and vendor. Also enables you to calculate use tax on the tax. GST can also be calculated from the general journal lines.

• Capability to map your general ledger to XBRL taxonomies so that the same XBRL document instance can be used for various purposes, independent of the format required by the receiver of the document.
• Support for the XBRL 2.1 Specification released by the XBRL Consortium.
Work with Budgets in general ledger accounts. After you have created a budget, you can print a balance that shows variances to the budget by percentage. Work with Multiple Budgets at one time. For example, work with a 100 per cent budget, a 110 per cent budget, and so on. Budgets are generally entered per period for the relevant general ledger accounts.
Consolidate companies in Microsoft Dynamics NAV. The companies can come from one or from several different Microsoft Dynamics NAV databases or other files, and you can import and export financial information in this granule. If data used is retrieved from several Microsoft Dynamics NAV solutions, use this granule only in the parent company.
With Intercompany Postings manage accounting for more than one company in the same posting process. The companies can be in the same or in one of several different Microsoft Dynamics NAV databases. You can also send documents to partner companies. Users control the document flow through an Inbox/Outbox feature, and transactions are completed as general journal transactions or through receivables and payables, which enables the use of currencies and correct reconciliation.
Set up profit centres and/or cost centres. A company can sell items with specific prices and that are related to a Responsibility Centre. You can associate a user to a responsibility centre so that only sales and purchase documents related to the particular user are displayed. Users get assistance with entering extra data, such as dimensions and location codes.

• Predefine recurring cost allocation rules on cost allocation cards and execute in a batch job.
