Titres de recette in the public sector in France

The titre de recette is used by the director to notify the accountant that the organization is entitled to collect a specific amount from another entity, and to authorize the accountant to deposit that amount. The director or the accountant may delegate a representative to perform the task, but the responsibility for each task remains with the director or the accountant. The titre maintains the strict separation that is required between the operational role of the director and the accounting role of the accountant.

In Microsoft Dynamics 365 for Finance and Operations, Enterprise edition, each titre is assigned a single free text invoice line. This guarantees that each titre concerns only one debtor and includes only one budgetary account. A group of related titres, together with all supporting documentation, are assigned to a bordereau de titre for submittal to the accountant.

Director’s tasks

From the Maintain titres de recette page, the director can complete the following tasks:

  • Assign invoice lines to a titre de recette. To find the invoice lines that haven’t yet been assigned to a titre, you can filter the retrieved lines by the Titre column.
  • Authorize collection of invoice lines that are assigned to titres. This can also be done from the Titre de recette tab on the free text invoice page.
  • Assign titres to a bordereau de titre. To find the invoice lines that haven’t yet been assigned to a bordereau de titre, you can filter the retrieved lines by the Bordereau de titre column.

To submit titres to the accountant for deposit, the director collects the printed titres and their related documentation under a borderau de titre.

  • Print the titres assigned to a bordereau from the Records to include FastTab on the Titre de recette report page.
  • Print the bordereau from the the Records to include FastTab on the Bordereau de titre report page.

Accountant’s tasks

From the Maintain titres de recette page or from the Titre de recette tab on the free text invoice page, the accountant can accept, reject, or hold titres. When a titre is rejected, the director status changes to Not reviewed, and the titre and bordereau de titre numbers are cleared.
