Exercise - Set up and assign a customer posting group

Completed

This exercise is written to use the Cronus sample company from the US version of Business Central. You might need to make adjustments to the steps if you use the sample company from your country or region.

Scenario

CRONUS currently has one customer posting group: DOMESTIC. You have decided to add an intercompany vendor posting group to accommodate the intercompany sales between business partners.

Because CRONUS only has domestic, intercompany business partners, you can use the same G/L accounts as you would for the domestic customer posting group, except for the receivables account for which you want to create a new G/L account: 10410: Intercompany customers.
