Business value

If you record special prices and line discounts for sales and purchases, Business Central can automatically calculate prices on sales and purchase documents, and on job and item journal lines. The price is the lowest permissible price with the highest permissible line discount on a given date. Price calculation in Business Central can fit many businesses, but there are also many that have industry- or business-specific pricing needs. This improvement addresses such needs by making price calculation easily extendable to fit business needs.

Feature details

This release wave introduces a second implementation of price calculation that will be available as an alternative to the calculation that was available in 2019 release wave 2 and earlier versions. This new implementation has the advantage that it is much easier to extend, for example, with new calculations.

The price calculation that was available in 2019 release wave 2 is unchanged. The new calculation in 2020 release wave 1 is an additional implementation that you can extend.

The new extendable price calculation capabilities currently exist in code only and do not include a user interface. We will provide that in an upcoming release. For now, you must create your own page to use the new capability.
