Updated: October 12, 2011

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

You can select transactions for settlement by using the scenarios that are described in this topic. The scenarios that are available to you depend on how the system is configured for your organization. The scenario that applies is determined by the legal entity that you select for the following legal entities that are involved in the payment settlement process:

  • Current legal entity – The legal entity that you are currently using in Microsoft Dynamics AX.

  • Legal entity of the payment – The legal entity that is generating the payment.

  • Legal entity of the invoice – The legal entity that generated the invoice.

In each scenario, you settle a payment with one or more invoices. If a settlement involves multiple legal entities, applicable due-to and due-from accounts are updated, based on the intercompany relationships that are set up for the affected legal entities in the Intercompany accounting form.

In this scenario, the current legal entity when you perform the settlement is the same as both the legal entity of the payment and the legal entity of the invoice.
