How to manage down payments in Dynamics 365 Business Central?

Your question:

Visiondata is the manufacturer of the add-on and works with sales partners like us who implement and support the add-on at companies.

Missing features in the standard are

your challenge without this add-on.

The functions related to prepayments or down payments in Dynamics 365 Business Central are limited. This means: The standard does not fully map down payments in the area of balance sheet accounts, as down payment invoices are netted with normal receivables. IIn addition, whether a deposit has been paid is not taken into account.

But don’t worry, we have a great solution up our sleeve for you.

Improved prepayment invoicing:

Visiondata's solution: Settle down payments in Business Central.

The add-on AnzahlungenPlus from our partner company Visiondata is a useful extension to the prepayment invoice function included in the standard Dynamics 365 Business Central/Dynamics NAV. This allows a transaction (e.g. an order) in purchasing, sales and project business to be provided with a prepayment invoice. For a complete list of functionalities and comparison to the Dynamics 365 Business Central standard, see the table below.

The following video illustrates the functionality, albeit in the previous version of Dynamics 365 Business Central and thus Dynamics NAV:
