In this post I’ll outline how to perform how to tackle bank reconciliation and re-evaluating foreign exchange balances as part of month end in Microsoft Dynamics NAV.

Bank Management

Month-end Bank Reconciliation Fees / Adjustments

While the bank account is typically reconciled throughout the month, when it comes to the month end close process, there are special adjustments and fees that are often posted to the last day of the previous month. With these transactions, you can enter them directly on your bank reconciliation in the ‘adjustment lines’ worksheet area of the bank reconciliation.

To enter your adjustments:

  • Scroll to the bottom of your bank rec. and expand the Adjustments tab;
  • Enter the Posting Date (typically the statement date) of the line item;
  • Select the relevant G/L account (e.g. “Bank Fees”, “Interest Expense”, etc.);
  • Select the balancing bank account;
  • These will post when you post your bank rec.

Foreign Currency Rates

Some clients will allow their customers and vendors to invoice / be invoiced in foreign currencies and, therefore, require tracking and posting of realized and unrealized gains and losses on foreign currency exchange.

This multicurrency management functionality inherently exists in NAV and can be accomplished by following the steps below:

  • Go to Currencies by either using the search function or navigating to Departments > Administration > Application Setup Financial Management > Finance > Currencies;
  • Select the currency you would like to adjust and click on Exch. Rates in the ribbon;

Enter the applicable fields and ranges and click OK to run the routine;
