When conventional costing plans are made in Microsoft Dynamics 365 Services in Pakistan, the process can be a bit stressful. The item type group and item group should be specified, and the purchase and sales order needs to be processed. Next, the business is required to generate a receipt and evaluate financial postings on the receipt. Phew, such an overwhelming process!

What does every posting indicate?

Why are they so many?

Where are those figures appearing from?

Considering that we provide Microsoft ERP Strategy and Consulting Services in Pakistan and are Microsoft Dynamics Partner in Pakistan, we get these questions a lot. Purchase order postings are particularly troublesome to understand. When utilizing the conventional costing inventory system, it’s essential to realize that purchase order postings might end in purchase price variation. But how is it calculated? And why is it debited and credited only? In this article, we'll guide you through the conventional costing sales orders and purchase order postings to encourage you to conquer both.

The Posting of Sales Orders

When posting sales orders, the system reports a drop in inventory and a rise in the accumulated cost of goods sold while a packing slip is posted. Consigned inventory is not in the warehouse, however, depending on business processes, it might need some duration for a sales order to be invoiced. Meantime, your accounting reports must indicate the business’ assets, debt, revenue, and expenses precisely. This is a basis for the initial step of the financial posting of a sales order.  

The next step of posting occurs through sales order invoicing. It modifies the packing slip posting and posts a closing monetary transaction. To initiate the conciliation process more manageable, we always recommend our clients to personalize the receipt form and attach the field - Posting Type. This accommodates to correlate exact postings with the particular group setup.

Through the initial step of packing slip posting, the operation multiplies an item’s price, which is introduced as a component of conventional costing setup, by a dispatched quantity.

Through sales order invoicing, which is the second act of posting a sales order, the system supports the following transactions; 

  • Cancellation of Packing Slip Posting 
  • The closing reduction in Inventory and rise in the COGS
  • Increase in Income and Receivables 

It’s essential to perceive that a General Ledger specified to the posting type, Packing Slip Offset - Dynamics AX 2012, or Cost of Units Delivered - Dynamics 365 Finance and Operations, will perpetually zero out by the point a sales order invoice is posted. Sales order postings are related, despite the inventory costing method.
