Introduction

The Intercompany (IC) Posting feature in Microsoft Dynamics ® NAV 2009 helpscompanies that control more than one legal business entity.

When companies use Intercompany Postings, it simplifies the process of doing business with subsidiary and internal partner organizations.

Users enter Intercompany Posting transaction information once in the appropriatedocuments, and using that data, Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2009 creates

transactions in the appropriate companies. Mapping between the companies,charts of accounts, and dimensions facilitates the creation of these transactions.

Intercompany in Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2009 describes the steps required to perform Intercompany Postings, beginning with setting up the companies asintercompany partners, called IC partners, and the central Chart of Accounts andDimensions. Once setup is complete, IC users can process documents and

journals.

Intercompany Overview and Database Preparation

Intercompany Postings uses a number of entries and documents for the relevanttransactions:

• General Journal entries• Purchase and sales orders

• Purchase and sales invoices• Credit memos• Return orders

To set up Intercompany Postings, the company must create a list of IC partnersand an IC chart of accounts. This allows users to also create General Journaltransactions; dimensions, if needed, must be set up separately.

Set up customers and vendors as business partners, and assign them IC partner

codes; this permits exchange of IC purchase and sales documents, includingitems and item charges. Because the receivables and payables functionalities inMicrosoft Dynamics NAV 2009 facilitate handling different currencies, ICtransactions can proceed in any currency.

Database Preparation

Before you can complete this course, it is required to have two companies inyour.

The two Intercompanies are set up exactly like other companies. The twocompanies used in this lesson:

• CRONUS Consultancy Ltd.• CRONUS International Ltd.

NOTE : A clean Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2009 database must be used.

Set Up the Chart of Accounts for IC Transactions

Before IC partners can begin to transfer IC transactions electronically, eachcompany must set up the IC Chart of Accounts in their company.

IC partners must agree on the account numbers that are used when ICtransactions are processed. Typically, the following steps occur to create the ICChart of Accounts:

1. The parent company creates a simplified version of their own chartof accounts.

2. This IC Chart of Accounts is exported from their database into anXML file.

3. The XML file is distributed to each of the subsidiaries performing ICtransactions.

4. Each subsidiary imports the XML file into the IC Chart of Accounts

and maps the accounts to the accounts in their own chart of accounts.

The IC Chart of Accounts window can also be filled out manually; however, the parent company will still define which account numbers and names are used.

When the IC partners map their Chart of Accounts to the agreed upon IC Chart ofAccounts, the account number that does not match must be manually mapped.

Demonstration: Set Up the IC Chart of Accounts in TwoCompanies

Scenario: Cassie, the accountant at CRONUS International Ltd., is in the process

of setting up the IC Chart of Accounts for use between:

• CRONUS International Ltd.• CRONUS Consultancy Ltd.

Since both companies are in the same Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2009 database,Cassie completes the process for both companies:

1. Copies the chart of accounts from CRONUS International Ltd.2. Maps the accounts to the same accounts.3. Exports the IC Chart of Accounts to an XML file on the desktop.

4. Imports the XML file into the CRONUS Consultancy Ltd. company.5. Maps the accounts to the same accounts, since both companies use

the same chart of accounts.

Set Up Default IC Partner G/L Accounts

When you create an IC journal or document line to send as an outgoingtransaction, enter an account from the IC Chart of Accounts indicating theaccount used for posting in the IC partner's company.

For accounts that are often used on outgoing IC journal or document lines, youcan specify a default IC partner G/L account in the Chart of Accounts window.For example, for the receivables accounts, enter the IC partner's payablesaccounts from the IC Chart of Accounts.

Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2009 automatically copies the contents of the defaultIC Partner G/L Acc. No. field to the IC Partner G/L Acc. No. field on the line:

IC Outbox and IC Inbox

The Intercompany Postings feature includes an IC Inbox and an IC Outbox that provide an overview of the IC transactions to process and the origins of the ICdocuments.

When you post IC transactions, the system transfers them to the IC Outbox. If theinformation is correct, you can send the transactions on to the IC partner for

processing.

• If the information is erroneous, you can cancel and remove thetransactions from the IC Outbox and then correct them using thestandard functionality of correcting posted entries.

You can review all incoming documents from IC partners in the IC Inbox andmanage transactions simultaneously or set filters to process transactionsseparately.

When an IC transaction is accepted, the corresponding documents or IC GeneralJournal lines are created automatically.

Each IC partner also has the ability to reject incorrect IC transactions. When ICtransactions are rejected, the transaction information is returned to the IC Inboxof the IC partner that sent it originally. That IC partner can then review theinformation and take action, such as:

• If the transaction is incorrect, cancel the transaction in the IC Inbox,credit or reverse the original transaction, and then create and send anew transaction.

• If the transaction is correct, cancel the transaction in the IC Inbox,and then re-create the outbox transaction from the Handled ICOutbox Transactions window and resend.

However, if an IC transaction is erroneously rejected and has not yet beenreturned to the IC partner, the Return to IC Inbox function can reconstitute theoriginal IC transaction in the IC Inbox, where it can be accepted.

IC Outbox Transactions

The IC Outbox Transactions window displays the IC transactions that are readyto be sent to IC Partners. Each line in this window represents either:

• A transaction that originated in this company.• A transaction received from an IC partner that has been rejected, so

that it may be sent back.
