Missing Functions in the Standard Are

Your Challenge without the Add-On

The functions related to prepayments or down payments in Dynamics 365 Business Central are limited. This means: The standard does not fully reflect down payments in the area of balance accounts, as down payment invoices are offset against normal receivables. Additionally, it does not consider whether a down payment has been paid.

But don’t worry, we have a great solution in store for you.

Visiondata's Solution: Settling Down Payments in Business Central

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

Manufacturer’s Note: The company Visiondata is the manufacturer of the add-on and collaborates with distribution partners like us to introduce and support the add-on in companies. Visiondata offers business add-ons for Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central, focusing on certified industry solutions in the accounting sector. The company, headquartered in Hamburg, currently employs around 40 people.

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