Updated: December 20, 2012

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

Click General ledger > Periodic > Journals > Periodic journals. In the Periodic journals form, click New. Enter any additional information, and then click Lines.

Use this form to enter transaction lines that you can repeatedly retrieve and post. Periodic journals are sometimes called recurring journals.

Examples of lines that you can enter in periodic journals are recurring periodic payments, such as rent or subscriptions, for which the amount, text, and other information are the same every time that the voucher is posted.

For example, your organization can reduce its rent expense by prepaying rent for an entire year. The payment is posted to an asset account such as prepaid rent. You then amortize your monthly rent expense throughout the year by creating a periodic journal that contains a credit to the prepaid rent account and a debit to an expense account for rent.
