|Simplified Payment Reconciliation
||You must routinely reconcile your bank, receivables, and payables accounts by applying payments recorded in your bank account to
their related unpaid invoices and credit memos or other open entries in Microsoft Dynamics NAV, which you then post as payment applications.
You can import a bank statement file from your bank to quickly register the payments in Microsoft Dynamics NAV.
During import, or when you activate it, an automatic application function will apply the payments to their related open entries based on a matching of dataon payments with data on open entries. You can use various functionality to review and change automatic applications and to make manual applications before you post the payment reconciliation journal.
In the Payment Reconciliation Journal window, you reconcile payments by performing two main activities:
Import bank statement files representing payments that have been made to or from your bank account and then automatically apply each payment to one or more open entries where it is possible.
Review and manually apply payments that could not be applied automatically or were applied with low or medium confidence. In the Payment Application window, you view detailed information about matched data and get suggestions for candidate open entries to apply the payment to.
|Improvements for Payment Export
||If you do not want to post a payment journal line for an exported payment, for example, because you are waiting for confirmation that the transaction has been processed by the bank, you can just delete the journal line.
When you later create a payment journal line to pay the remaining amount on the invoice, the Total Exported Amount field shows how much of the payment amount has already been exported. Also, you can find detailed information about the exported total by choosing the Credit Transfer Reg. Entries.
A SWIFT code is no longer required for domestic bank transfers using the SEPA standard. Therefore, you are no longer prompted to fill the SWIFT Code field on the company bank account, vendor bank account, or customer bank account when you export payments into the SEPA Credit Transfer format.
|Use Due Date as Posting Date in the Payment Journal
||When you use the Suggest Vendor Payments batch job to create payment journal lines, you have options on the request page to automatically insert the due date as the posting date, plus/minus any number of days.
|Bank Data Conversion Service
||A global provider of services to convert bank data to any file format that your bank requires is set up and connected in Microsoft Dynamics NAV by default. All you have to do is to activate the service in your installation by entering the service logon information in the Bank Data Conv. Service Setup window.
You can use the Bank Data Conversion Service feature to have a bank statement file that you receive from your bank converted to data that you can import into Microsoft Dynamics NAV. Reversely, you can use the conversion service to have payment information that you export converted to a bank payment file in the format that your bank requires.
The bank-account setup and user functionality for importing and exporting bank files that are processed by the bank data conversion service is the same as when you import/export bank files of a supported file standard, such as SEPA.
|SEPA CAMT Bank Statement Import
||For automatic payment processing and bank reconciliation based on bank statements in the SEPA CAMT format, you can use a bank file import function to quickly populate the Payment Reconciliation Journal and Bank Acc. Reconciliation windows. You select from enabled file formats in the Bank Statement Import Format field in the Bank Account Card window.
|Manage and Create Report Layouts
||In earlier versions of Microsoft Dynamics NAV, report layouts were based on RDLC. In Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2015, report layouts can also be created with Word 2013. From the Microsoft Dynamics NAV client, you can change which layout a report uses when viewing, printing, and saving the report. In addition, you can create and modify your own custom RDLC and Word report layouts.
|Custom Word and RDLC Report Layouts
||From the Microsoft Dynamics NAV clients, you can design the layout of Microsoft Dynamics NAV reports by using Microsoft Word 2013 or SQL Server Report Builder. Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2015 includes several built-in report layouts that are used on reports by default. You can use the built-in report layouts as a starting point for customizing your own layouts. This enables you to set up multiple variations of layout for the same report, which you can switch among when viewing, printing, and saving the report.
|Verify VAT Registration Numbers
||You can use an EU web service to verify that VAT registration numbers that you enter on customer, vendor, or contact cards are valid.
When you modify the VAT Registration No. field on a card where the value in the Country/Region Code field is an EU country/region, then the new VAT registration number and your user ID are logged in the VAT Registration Log window. To verify a VAT registration number, you can choose the DrillDown button next to the VAT Registration No. field to open the VAT Registration Log window and then start the verification function.
|Certificates of Supply for VAT Reporting
||When you sell goods to a customer in another EU country/region, the customer must confirm receipt before you can deduct VAT or calculate zero VAT according to the rules for intra-community trade. Microsoft Dynamics NAV provides support for creating and processing the required certificates.
|Coloured Indicators on Cues
||A Cue is a tile on the Role Center that provides a visual representation of business data, such as the number of open sales invoices or the total sales for the month. You can configure the Cue to include an indicator along the top border that changes colour based on the data in the Cue.
||When you enter data on pages in Microsoft Dynamics NAV, certain fields are marked with a red asterisk. The red asterisk means that the field must be filled to complete a certain process that uses the field, such as posting a transaction that uses the field value.
|Total and Discount Amounts Placed on Sales and Purchase Documents
||To always have an overview of the current total invoice amount and discount amount, five FlowFields are included under the Lines section on all active and posted sales and purchase documents: Total Excl. VAT (LCY), Total VAT (LCY), Total Incl. VAT (LCY), Invoice Discount Amount, and Invoice Discount Percent. In earlier versions of Microsoft Dynamics NAV, you could only see these amounts in the Statistics window.
