When Purchases and Direct Cost Applied Accounts Don’t Net to Zero in Microsoft Dynamics NAV
In an earlier blog, Purchases and Direct Cost Applied Accounts in Microsoft Dynamics NAV, we explained that these two account balances should always net to zero.
Recently, we received a call from a client saying that, in their system, the accounts did not net to zero and wondered why.
In another of our Blogs, Exact Cost Reversing in Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2013, we explained the how the ‘Exact Cost Reversing’ feature worked.
The likely cause of Purchases and Direct Cost Applied Accounts not netting to zero is that there have been Purchase Returns that have been made at a different cost than the original purchase.
So, to prevent that non-netting to zero for these accounts, select ‘Exact Cost Reversing’ in the Purchases and Payables Setup.
