About settlement type [AX 2012]

You have the following options when you work with settlement types:

  • If you choose None, the records will not be settled.

  • If you choose Open transactions, the entries will be settled automatically with open transactions, according to the FIFO principle.

  • The settlement type changes to manual settlement if you decide to settle the records manually by using the Set up > Settle open transactions menu item. When you enter vendor invoices, you can thus balance a vendor invoice against previously entered or open on-account payments or credit notes. You also can balance a credit note against one or more vendor invoices.
