Updated: September 8, 2012

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

An advance invoice is a document that you can create for a vendor. The advance invoice shows the amount that must be prepaid on a purchase order. The prepayment must be made before the order is processed. The advance invoice is not an accounting document or a tax document, but is used only as the basis for prepayments.

  1. Click Accounts payable > Common > Advance invoices > All advance invoices. To create a new advance invoice, click Advance invoice. To open an existing advance invoice, double-click the advance invoice.

  2. Enter the required information, and then click Post to post the invoice.

  3. On the Action Pane, in the Actions group, click Status to open the Change the status of an advance invoice form. In the New status field, select the status for the advance invoice.


    You can change the status of the advance invoice at any time. However, you cannot process advance invoices in transactions if the advance invoices have been closed.

  4. Press CTRL+S, or close the form.


You can also create a vendor advance invoice by using the Purchase order form. Select an existing purchase order, or create a new purchase order. On the Action Pane, on the Invoice tab, in the Generate group, click Advance invoice. Then follow steps 2 through 4 of the previous procedure.
