How to Pay Your Vendor Bills in Dynamics 365 Business Central
Using the Payment Journal, you can pull in all your payables, prioritize, and process payments when users know which fields drive this screen.
When you select Suggest Vendor Payments the very first field the system presents is the single most likely point where users will make a mistake.
For many, the name "Last Payment Date" can raise the question "when was the last time you paid your bills?" That is not the case, however. What "Last Payment Date" really means, in both Dynamics 365 Business Central and Dynamics NAV, is "how far in the future do you want to pay your bills?"
This date will almost always be in the future for you. Once you select the date that applies to your business, Dynamics 365 Business Central will review the due date on your Posted Purchase Invoices and bring the entries to the Payment Journal lines.
