Invoice Before GRN

write2souravwrite2sourav Posts: 113Member
My client purchases materials from outside. As a result the material takes 5-6 days to deliver from the date of shipping. But the invoice is raised on the date of shipping always. As a result the invoice date is always before the GRN date. Clients wants to post the Invoice in NAV first and then the GRN. How to handle such a situation..........Plz advice..

I am using NAV 2009 SP1 India localization.

    This is not possible in NAV. Material receipt (GRN/MRN) will always be made before invoicing.

    you can trick the process using Prepayment. -or-
    you can do a pre-receipt, as if you have receive the items. then when actual item arrive, you can transfer it to actual Location.
    B U T , you need to measure the risk.
    What if in actual delivery you return some items? What if the actual delivery the count is not match? What if ... many things you need to anticipate.
    you can make the Credit Memo or adjustment for the problem arises, but ... why you add more works to a process that in fact you can only do 1 posting?

    You can inform the client as this is not the standard business practice.

    Warm regards

    I made a GRN in Navision on today's date, but changed the invoice posting date to some earlier date and posted in the system. Now the liability was booked earlier, but material posting date was later.

    Is this really a valid way to overcome this scenario. Plz advice
