MSDyn365FO Credit Management, Part 7 – What logic is used when looking at the customer’s credit limit?

Credit Management for D365FO

In our last blog, we reviewed Customer credit groups and how they are used. Since there’s a credit limit on the Customer credit group and the Customer record, it’s important to understand the logic of the hierarchy.

Here’s the logic when looking at the customer’s credit limit. . .

  • First, the system checks to see if the customer belongs to a Customer credit group, if the customer is in a Customer credit group, then the Credit limit setup on the Customer credit group is used.

If the customer is in a Customer credit group, and there is enough credit in the group, then, the individual customer’s Temporary credit limit including Insurance and guarantees is used.

If the customer does not have a Temporary credit limit, then the customer’s Credit limit including Insurance and guarantees is used.

For example, if the Customer credit group has a credit limit of $1M and the total sum of all the open Sales Orders for the group is $500K, that means there’s enough credit for the Customer credit group.  Then the system looks at the customer.  If the customer’s Temporary credit limit or the Credit limit is $100K and the Sales Order is for $110K, the system knows that there’s not enough credit and will put the Sales Order on hold.

  • Second, if the customer is not in a Customer credit group, the individual customer’s Temporary Credit Limit including Insurance and guarantees is used.
  • Third, if the customer is not in a Customer credit group and if the customer does not have a Temporary Credit Limit, then the customer’s Credit limit including Insurance and guarantees is used.
