In this blog post I will cover the required setups to allow Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 to generate the accrual entry for procurement category purchases.
Go to Procurement and sourcing| Setup| Policy| Purchasing policy (select or create policy)
Select Category policy rule under Policy rule type. In the policy rules pane click Create policy rule, select category group, and mark Accrue purchase expense on receipt check box.
Create a Purchase Order for procurement category and a product receipt.
In order to check product receipt accrual entry go to the purchase order form under Accounts payable| Common| Purchase order| All purchase orders. Then move to the Receive tab, and select product receipt. In the product receipt journal form select voucher, the voucher transaction form will pop-up.
