Set up and maintain PRODCOM

This topic explains how to set up and maintain PRODCOM in Microsoft Dynamics 365 for Finance and Operations, Enterprise edition.

Manufacturers of industrial products are required to report the quantities and values of products sold, as well as employment data, to the Nationaal Instituut voor de Statistiek (NIS) in response to the routine PRODCOM survey. Most producers submit an itemized PRODCOM report to the NIS monthly, using one of six standard report formats. The NIS determines the report layout, depending on the nature of the materials produced. The PRODCOM report displays production statistics for industrial products that are manufactured by production companies operating in Belgium. This report is typically used by accounting managers and accountants.

  2. Enter an external contact ID - This is the identification that is printed under the external contact information section of the PRODCOM declaration.
  3. Select a company or warehouse.

    • If the local branch is Company, the branch number of the company is transferred to the PRODCOM lines.

    • If the warehouse does not have a branch number, the branch number of the company is used.
