Use this form to adapt the posting profiles from the companies in the preexisting data set to the new accounting patterns found in the new accounting framework with in Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012.

This new accounting framework introduces a separation between the accounting for liability and the accounting for inventory assets. The separation alters the accounting patterns in the expenditure cycle for the accounting of accruals for the product receipts.

The product receipts of purchased items that are held in inventory always account for accrued liability. The expenditure of the receipt of products that are held in inventory credits an account for an un-invoiced purchase expenditure and also debits an account for accrued liability. Inventory accounting debits the purchase expenditure un-invoiced account when crediting the cost that is capitalized to the inventory asset account.

You must revise your existing configuration for each company account for all of the areas listed and selected in the grid:

  • Posting profile - Select a method that lets you specify the two accounts that you want to use for accrued liability and the purchase expenditure that has not been invoiced.

    NoteNote

    In Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 you set up item posting profiles in the Posting form under Setup in Inventory and warehouse management.

  • Costing voucher - Configure three new voucher number sequences. You use these voucher sequences to number the vouchers for the inventory accounting entries for product receipt, for vendor invoice, and for purchase returns.

  • Journal name - Specify a general ledger journal for the relief of accrual accounting entries that have not yet been matched to vendor invoices. These entries cannot be relieved by the new Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 accounting framework logic.

NoteNote

By default, all these areas are pre-selected when you open this form and cannot be modified. However, you must select each company account in the grid individually and set the upgrade options in the relevant fields of the grid for that particular company account. For more information about each option, see the field descriptions.
