Set up POS Posting Profile

Each POS unit can have a different set of posting rules. The first thing is to set POS Posting Profile.

  1. Click the Lightbulb button, enter POS Posting Profile, and choose the related link.
  2. Create New.
  3. Add the Code in the indicated field.
  4. Add a Description.
  5. Make a selection between Store and Customer in the Default POS Posting Setup field.
    Your choice determines whether rules will apply to the POS store or customers.
  6. Set the value of the Source Code field to Retail.
  7. Set the predefined posting group in the field General Business Posting Group.
  8. Set the predefined VAT posting group in the VAT Business Posting Group field.
  9. (Optional) If the posting profile is set up for the US localization, populate the Tax Area Code and Tax Liable fields.
  10. (Optional) If the posting to the General Ledger is done by posting the period compression, populate the POS period Register No. Series field.
  11. (Optional) If a customer is assigned to a specific POS store, populate the VAT Customer No. field.
  12. Define how the POS entries will be posted in Posting Compression.
  • Uncompressed – Every POS entry line is posted as-is in the General Ledger.
  • Per POS Entry – The lines are compressed per an account code within that entry.
    Example: If there are 3 lines for sale with the same revenue account, the entry is compressed into one line in the General Ledger entry for that transaction.
  • Per POS Period – All transactions within that POS period are compressed per the same General Ledger account.
    Example: 100 sales lines are compressed as 1 line in the General Ledger.
