Advance holder transactions

Learn how to work with advance holder transactions in Microsoft Dynamics 365 for Finance and Operations, Enterprise edition.

Transactions for these workers who are advance holders can be posted by using advance holder accounts. The worker ID that is specified for each advance holder can be used to track all advance holder transactions. This number is retrieved as an account number for advance holder transactions in the General journals and Advance holder transactions pages.

Create and post a purchase order with advance holder details

For more general information about purchase orders, see Purchase order overview. If a vendor invoice is created and posted with advance holder details, the advance holder’s balances will be posted to the employee balance account instead of the vendor balance account. To add advance holder details to a purchase order, do the following:

  • In the Terms of payment field in the Price and discount section, select the payment term. Select a payment term that has the From advance holder option selected on the Terms of payment page. For more information about setting up terms of payment for advance holders, see Advance holders.
  • In the Advance holder field on the Price and discount FastTab, select the advance holder for the purchase order.

The purchase order posting process creates two vendor transactions with opposite amounts and one advance holder transaction. Without advance holder details, only one vendor transaction is created.
