This update introduces the changes that allow exporting of customers and vendors details for FEC related audit files in Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 R3.

More Information

Per article L47A1 of the French book of tax procedures, businesses must provide an extract from their accounting system, in the form of a standardized file of accounting entries that can be used directly by the tax authorities. This file is known as the "fichier d’écriture comptable" (FEC) file.

The FEC file must contain the detailed set of transactions from sub-ledger accounts that are made up of journals that are dedicated to categories of operations (accounts receivable, accounts payable, and so on). If specific entries were booked in sub-ledgers, you must retrieve the details (that is, transaction-specific information) in the FEC file.

If the system is set up to post summarized entries to general ledger, then you will experience the following issues:

  • When multiple customers or vendors sub-ledgers operations are included into one voucher and use the same ledger accounts then final general ledger transactions will not allow to always make the exact backward break-down to individual customers or vendors transactions in general ledger due to ambiguity of the data stored on financial side.

  • When closing a financial year, the system calculates opening balances for the next period as summarized amounts by main accounts and analytical dimensions. No original sub-ledgers details are considered.
    If no additional analytical dimensions were defined for customers or vendors then it will be impossible to have individual customers or vendors opening balances on financial side.

This update (together with additional setup) address these issues using additional audit files which can be considered as explications of the details of General ledger summarized transactions.
