This article applies to Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 R@for all regions.
When you complete the year-end closing process, the posting layer is not included when nominal account balances are closed and opening entries are created.
This issue occurs when the offset account that is derived from the posting definition is set to Close type of Real. The account has an opening balance transaction created for it if the periods are set up in this manner on the Opening Transactions process form. However, the opening transaction that is created for the account does not respect the posting layer of the closing transactions it is processing.
