What’s new


Customer invoice numbering in Lithuania and Latvia

In Lithuania and Latvia, you can assign specific numbers to sales invoices by user or user group.

For more information, see (LTU) Set up document self-numbering ranges.

Pre-acquisition handling of fixed assets

In Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 R2, asset acquisition can be split into two separate steps, each of which has its own general ledger (GL) postings and fixed asset updates. Therefore, separate GL entries can be recorded when the asset is expensed, and when it is put into use. Depreciation is not permitted for assets that are still in the first step of the process (the Pre-acquisition stage). Pre-acquisition amounts can be viewed at the asset level.

For more information, see (EEUR) Post the pre-acquisition and acquisition of a fixed asset.

Print the tax directive on sales invoices

In Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 R2, you can set up tax directives for the corresponding sales tax codes and print the tax directives on sales invoices in multiples languages for all Eastern European countries/regions.

For more information, see (EEUR) Set up a tax directive.

Round fixed asset depreciation amounts for Eastern European countries/regions

You can round fixed asset depreciation amounts up or down to the nearest number, as specified in the Round off depreciation field.

For more information, see (EEUR) About rounding off depreciation amounts.

Tax reports can be based on the value-added tax (VAT) register date

In the Czech Republic and Poland, you can report tax information on a date that differs from the posting date. The Date of VAT register field is added to sales, purchase, and project documents. You can now generate various sales tax reports based on this date.

For more information, see (EEUR) Activate the VAT registration date as the reporting date in EU sales list reports.

Create corrected invoices

For Eastern European countries/regions, you can create and post a canceling free text invoice without creating a corrective free text invoice.

For more information, see (EEUR) Cancel a posted free text invoice.

Intrastat reporting for Eastern European countries/regions

You can generate Intrastat reports for Eastern European countries/regions in the generic .xml format. You can use Extensible Stylesheet Language for Transformations (XSLT) style sheets, and export country/region-specific Intrastat reports as .xml files or .csv files, based on the XSLT style sheets. You can use the XSLT style sheets to maintain multiple versions of the .xml or .csv files.

For more information, see (LTU) Export an Intrastat report in the XML format.

Customer and vendor settlement transactions can now be viewed for specific settlement types

A new helper table stores additional information about settlement transactions. You can view this information by clicking the Transactions on settlement button in the Customer transactions and Vendor transactions forms for the following settlement types:

  • Exchange adjustments, when the settlement of an invoice and a payment generates a realized exchange rate difference

  • Posting profile changes, when two entries that have different posting profiles are settled

  • Prepayments that are converted to payments, when a prepayment is converted to a payment, or a payment is converted to a prepayment, by using the Prepayment handling form

  • Unrealized exchange rate adjustments, when the settlement of an invoice and a payment generates an unrealized exchange rate difference reversal

  • Cash discounts, when an invoice is settled with a payment that has a cash discount applied

  • Penny differences, when an invoice is settled with a payment for a slightly different amount (overpayment/underpayment)

  • Conditional tax postings, when an invoice is settled with a payment that has conditional tax applied

  • Cross-company settlements, when an invoice is settled with a payment between different companies by using intercompany functionality

For more information, see (EEUR) Customer transactions (modified form) and (EEUR) Vendor transactions (modified form).
