D365 F&SC Tip of the Day: In Microsoft D365 Finance and Supply Chain (D365 F&SC), since Microsoft deprecated the Prepayment feature on Sales Orders, we can take a different approach to accomplish the business need. To learn how to process Sales Order Prepayments, see the guide below.
Since Microsoft deprecated the Prepayment feature on Sales Orders, we can take a different approach to accomplish the business need.
Create the Sales Order
Confirm the Sales Order
Print the Proforma Invoice and send the Proforma Invoice to the customer. Ask the customer to use the Sales Order number as the Invoice number.
Create a Customer Payment Journal by going to Account Receivable > Payments > Customer Payment Journal > make sure you put the Sales Order number in the Payment Reference field.
On the Payment tab, set the Prepayment Journal Voucher field to Yes.
Note: If you get the Error: Prepayment must be created in a journal where amount is including sales tax, you need to set the Sales Tax on Prepayment Journal Voucher field to No in Accounts Receivable Parameters.
Go back to the Sales Order and apply the Prepayment to the order by going to Invoice > Settle > Open Transactions.
Since the Sales Order number was entered into the Payment Reference field on the Payment Journal, the payment will automatically be displayed in the Settle Transactions screen. Place a checkmark under the Mark column > click Yes to the pop-up > click OK. This tells D365 to automatically apply the prepayment to the invoice when the Sales Order Invoice is posted.
After posting the invoice, when you look at the customer transactions, you’ll see that the prepayment was automatically settled to the invoice.
