(FRA) Key tasks: Mandats de paiement and bordereaux de mandat (Public sector) [AX 2012]

Updated: June 19, 2013

Applies To: Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 R3, Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 R2, Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 Feature Pack, Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012

The mandat de paiement is used by the director to notify the accountant that the organization is obligated to pay a specific amount to another entity, and to authorize the accountant to pay that amount. The director or the accountant may delegate a representative to perform the task, but the responsibility for each task remains with the director or the accountant.

A group of related mandats, together with all supporting documentation, are assigned to a bordereau de mandat for submittal to the accountant.

NoteNote

Mandats de paiement are available only if all three of the following conditions are met:

  • The Public Sector configuration key is selected.

  • The French regulatory configuration subkey is selected.

  • The Use French public sector accounting rules check box in the Budget parameters form is selected.

In versions of Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 prior to cumulative update 7, only the Public Sector configuration key must be selected, but the primary address of the legal entity must be in France.

(FRA) About mandats de paiement (Public sector)

About accounting distributions and subledger journal entries for vendor invoices

When a vendor invoice is received, the director approves or certifies that the goods or services were received and gathers the necessary supporting documentation. Once everything is in order, the director assigns each invoice line to a mandat.

For certain expenses, the accountant may make a payment before receiving a mandat, and the director will regularize the payment by issuing a mandat afterward. This usually occurs for urgent or recurrent expenses, such as utility payments or rent. It may also occur when money is owed to a régisseur.

  1. Click Accounts payable > Reports > France > Mandat de paiement.

  2. To retrieve invoices that have not yet been paid, in the Invoice status group, click Pending.

    To retrieve invoices that have already been paid, in the Invoice status group, click Posted.
