You must routinely reconcile your bank, receivables, and payables accounts by applying payments recorded in your bank account to their related unpaid invoices and credit memos or other open entries in Microsoft Dynamics NAV, which you then post as payment applications.

In the Payment Reconciliation Journal window, you can import a file with bank transactions to quickly register the payments in Microsoft Dynamics NAV. During import, or when you activate it, an automatic application function will apply the payments to their related open entries based on a matching of data on payments with data on open entries. You can use various functionality to review and change automatic applications and to make manual applications before you post the payment reconciliation journal.

If you do not reconcile payments based on imported bank transactions, or you do not need automatic application, you can perform the same tasks manually in the Payment Registration window. In this window you can use a simple overview of payments made, lump-sum posting, and other functions to find and create related sales documents. For more information, see Reconcile Customer Payments Manually.

The following table describes a sequence of tasks, with links to the topics that describe them. These tasks are listed in the order in which they are generally performed.
