Vendor prepayments scenarios are vary from company to another, and may be vary in the same company according to situation/business case. MS Dynamics AX 2012 adopt the business requirements and that emphasis the agility of MS Dynamics AX.
Recently I have covered the Vendor Pre-payment function in MS Dynamics AX 2012, the prepayment setups, prepayment assignment, prepayment settlement, and applying prepayment invoice, this is a new feature in MS Dynamics AX 2012 and fulfill a certain business need when the organization requires that the prepayment must have a confirmed Purchase Order recorded on MS Dynamics AX 2012, there are another business scenario where paying the advanced payment then link it to the purchase order, the invoice is automatically settled to the prepayment.
Create, and post vendor prepayment journal, then create a purchase order, and link the prepayment to the Purchase Order header
Invoice the purchase order, here the invoice is setteled with the prepayment, and this appears in the vendor closed transaction editing.
